Victims of 9/19 Mexico Earthquake

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.
