    Story

    To all my friends and colleagues in Europe and rest of the world ... It would be of extremely helpful if you could support by means of this page (or others) those organisations in Mexico City that need the most at the moment to help dozens of people injured and trapped in buildings collapsed after the earthquake that hit Mexico City and other cities. I will do more research to find what is the easiest to donate this money as soon as possible but for now I will transfer all of it to the Mexican Red Cross (https://www.cruzrojamexicana.org.mx/) and Brigada de Rescate Topos (http://www.topos.mx/) in equal parts and will send evidence of that. £1, £5, anything would be great. I am starting myself donating £1000, hope that helps you to support too. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      This is the plan: Mexico City has had fortunately lots of support and we have asked people of other small communities that were affected and we found one: Santa Catalina Tepenapa, Municipio de Tochimilco. https://en.mexico.pueblosamerica.com/i/santa-catalina-tepanapa/ https://mapcarta.com/30068602 Erik (my brother in law), has also received some donations from his cousin from Minnesota and together we will support with goods that community. We started buying few things (watch video), list of items to follow ...

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
