Please consider making a donation between $5 - $50. Of course, if you can donate more than $50, that's wonderful too!
These funds will be transferred to Juan's US bank account as a pass-through, and then they will be distributed to two different destinations in Mexico.
1) Roughly one third of the funds will be sent by bank transfer to Los Amigos de San Cristobal, directed by Ana Cristina Sánchez Carpizo. Los Amigos is a community based NGO that works on capacity building efforts in the Altos of Chiapas. See their website: http://amigosdesc.org/espanol/
2) The rest of the funds will be sent to community members in Juan's town (Benito Juarez, de la Concordia, Chiapas) who have been directly affected by the earthquake. Juan's contacts in Benito Juarez know the families personally who have had damage to their homes.
