Hurricanes + Earthquakes

PR_Feb 2017_Edited-13.jpg

It feels like the earth is crying and we're not paying attention. 

Yesterday there was an earthquake in Mexico. Today, a hurricane - the third this month - wreaked havoc across the Caribbean and made landfall in Puerto Rico this morning.

I've been waiting to hear back from loved ones since last night. Luckily, blessedly, fortuitously, everyone I know is safe. 

These are photos from my last trip to San Juan in February. I'm not sure where to direct support/funds to rebuilding in Puerto Rico yet. 

In the meantime, here are two ways to support the recovery efforts in Mexico:

  • Donate to Los Topos via paypal (donativos@brigada-rescate-topos.org topos.mx). Los Topos is a professional Mexican rescue team that specializes in searching for victims under the debris of collapsed buildings and providing first aid. They've assisted rescue efforts in over twenty countries since they were first established. 
  • Purchase items from the Red Cross Mexico wishlist - it includes sanitary pads, diapers and other essentials. Please select "Cruz Roja Mexicana" when choosing the delivery address
