Mexico earthquakes damages

20% of every reiki session ordered during the month of September 2017 will be donated to this beautiful cause.

Last September, a devastating 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico. Approximately 2.3 million people were affected and the number of deaths increased to 90. In addition, the tropical storms and hurricanes that have impacted this area have complicate the situation. Thousands of people have lost their homes and are living with no roof in raining, with high health risk.

Immediate relief efforts are needed to ensure survivors and first responders receive critical resources, including housing, medical aid, water, and emotional support. Once the immediate needs are addressed, these communities will need ongoing resources in order to re-establish their livelihoods, support communities, and jobs.

Proyecto Impacto will support recovery and relief efforts for these two disasters in Mexico. Initially, the fund will help any first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, medical care and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, the organization will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.
