Summary

After the tropical storm Manual and Hurricane Ingrid in September 2013, thousands of Mexicans are suffering from the floods and at least 80 have lost their lives. IMIFAP works in Guerrero and Oaxaca in indigenous and Afromexican communities that have suffered from flooding. Many of these communities are now isolated due to the floods and landslides and the official help doesn't reach them. It is necessary to take food and medicines to these communities and help them with the reconstruction.

Challenge

Guerrero has suffered terribly from the floodings. Most of the media attention is on the Coast, but in the Mountain region there are lots of communities that are isolated due to the rains and landslides. The Coast of Oaxaca has also suffered from the floodings, but there are very little help for this area, as most of the help is going to Guerrero. No governmental help is arriving to the region. These communities need food and medicines, but also help for the reconstruction.

Solution

IMIFAP has worked in the Mountain Region of Guerrero and the Coast of Oaxaca in community development programs. With this project, we will provide help for the most inmediate needs (food, medicines, clothes) for 9 communities in Guerrero and 9 in Oaxaca. We will also help with the reconstruction of the houses and agricultural lands. In many communities, agriculture is an important livelihood and the agricultural lands and crops destroyed by the floods need to be rehabilitated.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help approximately 6500 people in 18 communities in the Mountain Region of Guerrero and the Coast of Oaxaca. We will help them with the immediate needs, but also participate in the reconstruction that can take much longer. We will also continue to work with these communities in community development programs after the immediate emergency is over.
