Temporary School in Xochimilco, Mexico City
The historic community of San Gregorio in Xochimilco suffered significant damage in the earthquake on September 19. Of the 4000 homes in the town, 1000 are uninhabitable and reconstruction will take months. The schools are damaged have no plan to reopen soon, and the families who have lost their homes and livelihoods have been eating donated meals amidst the rubble.
