Mexico Emergency Relief

Emergency Appeal: 2018 ushered in another earthquake, measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale, off the southern Pacific coast of Mexico that was felt 225 miles away in Mexico City. Flash backs of last year's deadly earthquake, that killed over 300 and injured countless more, caused widespread fear and panic.

HHRD's Emergency Relief Team, led by Saad Ansari along with Issam Lagrichi, brother Pervaiz and local volunteers were on location in Oaxaca once again providing construction materials for damaged homes.

Current Situation:

The city of Oaxaca, where HHRD ERT is focusing its efforts, is closest to the epic center of this recent earthquake. There have been no reported deaths however, dozens of homes have been damaged.

Dozens of families have come out to receive material to secure the roofs of their homes following the earthquake. HHRD ERT has been working diligently to meet the needs of these people in hopes of ensuring their safety.

HHRD Work in Mexico: HHRD is a registered NGO in the region and has been conducting Seasonal and Emergency Relief projects in and around the city of Chiapas. Our teams are currently on high alert with plans of providing immediate emergency relief. HHRD provided extensive emergency relief to those affected by the back to back 8.1 and 6.2 earthquakes last year. Food, water, and medicine were provided to those affected in Oaxaca, Mexico City, Puebla and Morelos. Donate to our Mexico Emergency Relief Fund as our Emergency Response Team continues to provide relief on the ground.

"This Abuelita (grandmother) came and attempted to give the last of her saving and told me this is for you because you came from so far to see us, thank you. I refused and asked her to give me a priceless kiss instead, she broke down in tears so I kissed her instead and thanked her for her hospitality and the opportunity to visit her and her community.", shares our ERT member Sr. Nahela.
