Mexico, Puebla and Morelos Earthquake Relief

by International Community Foundation Vetted since 2017 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


ICF has been working consistently with local organizations to provide disaster relief to communities affected by the two earthquakes that greatly damaged central Mexico last year. Currently we are seeking to improve the longer term resilience of communities to rebuild themselves, including capitalizing on the opportunities to improve community enterprises.

The earthquakes, which hit on the 32nd anniversary of the historic 1985 Mexico City earthquake and on September 8th of 2017, with a magnitude of 8.1, have caused significant damage and deaths throughout communities in central Mexico as well as in southern states such as Oaxaca and Chiapas.


ICF is working with local organizations in these regions to cover instant basic needs and long-term reconstruction costs. Our short-term objective is to address the immediate necessities of grieved children, to help adjust their lives and bring them back to school as soon as possible, particularly in the more isolated communities of the affected regions.

Long-Term Impact

In the coming weeks we will be reimbursing our grantees for any short-term relief efforts they have been carrying out, and aim to align our grantmaking with long-term reconstruction efforts once there is more clarity from the government, civil society, and private sectors on next steps.
