Oaxaca, Mexico - The 8.1-magnitude earthquake that rattled Mexico on September 7, 2017 was the strongest earthquake to hit the country in over a century, affecting some 800,000 people in 1900 communities in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.
Worst hit were the Istmo region of Oaxaca and the mountainous Mixe region in the same state, where efforts are under way - by the government, international nonprofits, and local communities alike - to provide relief to those most affected by the quake.
With the Techos de Esperanza campaign, Primero por Ti is helping a number of state NGOs collect food, medicines and economic resources for the families in Oaxaca that were affected by the earthquake. For those who are able to donate supplies, an account has been set up at donadora.mx, where you can safely make a monetary donation online.
All of the monies collected will be used to buy materials for basic repairs of the homes that the quake damaged or destroyed, which will give the affected families a place to sleep, cook and bathe.
At least 10,000 pesos per family is needed to reconstruct the basic living spaces in their homes, so Primero por Ti is looking to collect 300,000 pesos for the 'Brigadas por la Vida - Techos de Esperanza' campaign, which ends on September 30, 2017.
Everyone who makes a donation will be contacted immediately and subsequently sent a report of who received their support and how their money was spent. Upon completion, a comprehensive report of everything the campaign accomplished will be sent to all donors via electronic media.
Please visit donadora.mx, to donate today. Any amount is appreciated, as your donation will help these families get through another day as they wait for more aid to arrive.To learn more about Fundación Primero por Ti, email direccion(at)primeroporti.org, call 011 52 (951) 222-3624, or visit their Facebook page.
