Help Juchitan Recover

In the first few minutes of 9/8/17; the strongest earthquake to have record of, hit the Southern Pacific coast of Mexico. The Town of Juchitan in the Mexican state of Oaxaca has been one of the most affected. Unfortunately, several buildings have collapsed and many have died.
This town is where my Father grew up and where my uncles, aunts and cousins live today.

Then, at approximately 1:00pm on 9/18/17, the very same date of the destructives 1985 earthquakes; Central Mexico was hit again with a magnitude above 7 degrees on the Richter Scale.

Unfortunately, my aunts lost their house and a close friend of one of my sister's is missing. Like them, many, many people are in desperate need of help for basic things: Water, water filters, nonperishable food, first aid medical supplies, diapers for babies and adults, tents, etc.

I feel fortunate to be able to help; I believe it is the right thing to do, and I immensely thank you for support. Your generous donation will go directly to get and distribute the things that are needed now. It will take years and the responsible involvement of institutions and governments to rebuild infrastructure and get back on the prosperity track; but I know that what together we can do for this cause; will make a difference in the life of present and future generations.

Many blessings to you
