As most of you know, Mexico was just hit with a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. As of now, there have been more than 200 deaths and that number is only expected to increase. It has taken the lives of many, but it has also left others with no homes. It is a very difficult time for everyone in Mexico right now. My family and friends are located in a small town (Tilzapotla, Morelos) that was severely impacted by the earthquake. I decided to start this GoFundMe in hopes of raising some money in order to help. As of right now, people there do not have electricity and it has been almost impossible to communicate with them. This is a very small town of only about 4,700 people and as of now 127 homes are damaged, including 2 schools. Of these 127 homes, about 60 of them are a total loss, meaning the damage is severe or are no longer safe to live in. Some of the people who have lost their homes are elderly who can no longer work. The food in the town will be limited for a while. Families have lost their loved ones who were working in the factories due to the damage. Anything will help. Please remember the US Dollar is valued at almost double in Mexico and will go very far. Currently $1 is equivalent to 17.79 pesos.
The money will be spent on food, first aid, and materials to help rebuild homes.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, we appreciate any help or prayers sent our way.
My name is Erica Escorcia my entire family is from this town my parents and grandparents are there now and most of my family and people I grew up with. This money will be use to by material needed to re built houses , by food and/or medicine. I will be collecting the money and then sending it to Mexico by western union to my father Antonio Peralta and to Laura Yasiel Delgado Hernandez, they are helping me find the people who need it the most and also they are helping me find the materials and the prices so we can make sure this is used in the best way. thank you so much for all your help!
