Challenge

On September 19th 2017, an earthquake of historic proportions (7.1) devastated Mexico and shook the foundation of our NPH Mexico family. Although our children and staff are thankfully safe, the earthquake permanently destroyed or damaged an unprecedented number of NPH Mexico properties. Many of our children have been displaced from their sleeping areas and are studying in in the open air until repairs can be made to their homes and schools. Immediate support is needed to repair the damages.

Solution

This project is focused on the recostruction needs for the school of the Casa San Salvador (Miacatlan). We are focusing on repairing and fixing many facilities such as the main entrance arch which is fractured and in danger of collapsin. The dining room presents too much of a risk to use it, repairs are urgent since now our children are eating in the main patio. These activities will the repair damages from the 7.1 magnitude earthquake and provide our children a safe environment.

Long-Term Impact

Casa San Salvador is a site of 130 acres has served as the main facility for the NPH Mexico family since 1970. Always bustling with activity, over 430 children live, play and study in this village of Miacatlan, which is located 77 miles south of Mexico City. Casa San Salvador facilities are quite extensive and offer a village feel with cobblestone streets, boungainvillea filled archways and a lush landscape. Repairing the school will provide our children a safe home and programs for their future
