On September 19th, the strongest and deadliest earthquake since 1985 hit Mexico City. Aid workers, rescue response teams and civilians have been hastily addressing the damage to regions hit by the quake. Mexicans in affected areas still urgently need food, water, medicine and construction materials to rebuild their homes.

To find out how humanitarian efforts can best allocate resources to help, Dalia asked Mexicans in the affected areas about their needs.

How to Help

A remarkable 74% of Mexicans who were not directly affected by the earthquake say they have already helped in some way, and another 19% say they plan to help. You can help too!

So how can you help? Below you’ll find a list of organisations contributing to the Mexican recovery efforts. But it is important to do your research before donating to understand how your contributions will be used to help. Also consider reaching out to friends from Mexico who might be directly or indirectly affected by the earthquake to see how you can help on a personal level.
