Earthquake Relief in Mexico
Most of you probably know that over the last month Mexico has been shaken with serious and damaging earthquakes. Thousands of people have been affected in areas like Oaxaca, Chiapas, Puebla, Morelos and Mexico City. Here in Playa Del Carmen we are doing what we can by sending disaster relief in the form of non-perishable foods, rescue material, medication, clothing, blankets, children’s toys and school material. Over the next few months there will be THOUSANDS of people left homeless, without power and basic services, receiving little or no support from the government. These people will be trying to put their homes and their lives back together, and we will be hosting various fund-raiser events in the coming weeks to help them as much as we can. Our friends in CDMX from #BrigadaDeLuz are still currently supporting rescue and rebuilding efforts, so if you are not sure where to go to help in Mexico City do not hesitate to contact them here. Don’t forget that the difficult task of rebuilding is just beginning, and that there are still people waiting to be rescued from the rubble. FUERZA MEXICO!!
