The Mixe indigenous community of Rio Pachine suffered severe damage from the September 2017 earthquakes. In addition, the dirt floor on which the houses, streets and courtyards are located, has been deeply cracked. Due to its geological formation, this land accumulates risks of collapse, destroying new or rebuilt houses. In order to safely rebuild the houses on the same area, it is necessary to adapt the area for any other natural incidents, such as heavy rainfall or other earthquakes.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, the government's actions have not applied any support to this geological risk situation. Claims assistance protocols have been applied, and the result has been government immobility. The families of Rio Pachine have resorted to denouncing the situation in the Human Rights institutions. The responsible offices have escaped their responsibility due to changes in federal government. Women have lost the foundations of their productive, artisanal activity.
Attend community needs, such as the post-traumatic stress people are living in and the reactivation of the economy. We will build a pilot house that can function as a housing model for other families. Create information units and raise public awareness about the geological risks of the community. Create a network of specialized, technicians interested in the reconstruction of the community and we will continue in gestion with authorities for that they attended the reubication problem
Remove the damaged land and ensure that it supports new houses resistant to new earthquakes and establish 83 safe and adequate homes.
