Summary

On Sept. 19, 2017, Mexico City and surroundings, including Morelos and Puebla, suffered devastation from a 7.1M earthquake. Hundreds were killed and countless homes, schools, and community buildings were destroyed. This followed an 8.1M quake in Oaxaca and Chiapas on Sept. 7. This fund was created to provide immediate relief to survivors in the form of food, shelter, water, and medicine. In addition, it is now supporting longer-term assistance to help residents recover and rebuild.

Challenge

Immediate relief efforts provided by this fund ensured that survivors and first responders received critical resources, including food, housing, medical aid, water, and psychosocial care. Earthquake-affected families are now on the long journey to rebuilding their communities and re-establishing their livelihoods.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support the ongoing recovery and relief efforts for these two earthquakes in Mexico. Initially, the fund helped first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, medical care, and shelter. This fund is now dedicated to supporting longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations across Mexico.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
