Victims of 9/19 Mexico Earthquake

$5,100 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 19 months
A strong earthquake hit the center of Mexico on September 19 killing more than 300 people and injuring more than 2800.  While most of the attention and media has been on Mexico City, the small state of Morelos had 74 killed and a very large number of people lost their homes and businesses. 

I am a Social Documentary/Humanitarian photographer, member of Photographers Without Borders. From September 23 to September 26, I volunteered to photograph impacted people in the populations of Hueyapan, Tecomalco, Chinameca, and Jojutla. I have a list of people who need help because they lost their homes and I have created this fundraiser to help them. The money donated will be divided in equal parts to the families in this list.

Virginia Hernandez from Hueyapan Morelos. Her home is inhabitable. She is mother of 6 and expecting a seventh one.

Consuelo Hernandez with address in Benito Juarez 7, Barrio San Andrés Hueyapan. Her home was completely destroyed.
