Hurricane Otis made landfall on Oct. 25 near Acapulco, Mexico, and the full extent of the damage is still unknown. The storm caused widespread communication outages, and more than 500,000 people were left without power in Mexico's Guerrero state and surrounding areas. At least four people are missing. That number, and the death toll, are expected to rise.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts throughout affected communities in Mexico. These efforts will be led by GlobalGiving's network of vetted partners in the region. Initially, the fund will help meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, medicines, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery and resiliency efforts led by local, vetted organizations.
