After three earthquakes of magnitudes 8.2, 7.1, and 6.1 hit Mexico in September, the country faces devastating damage. According to the authorities, the natural disasters left a death toll of 369 people, 150,000 buildings were damaged, and over 10,000 schools affected. This is the biggest tragedy in Mexico in 32 years.
How we will use your donations?
We have created a reconstruction fund to rebuild houses in the most affected areas by the earthquakes in Mexico (Oaxaca, Chiapas, Morelos, Puebla, Mexico City and Mexico City). This fundwill be administered by Holcim Mexico through its nonprofit organization arm called Centro de Capacitación Agropecuario y Forestal in coordination with other foundations, companies and international relief organizations.
We want to provide families with decent homes, built with earthquake resistant materials and infrastructure. Our goal is to do this ; while respecting the traditions and customs of each area, and allow families and communities affected to regain confidence. Throughout the different construction stages we will promote social inclusion and integration to help people get back on their feet and resume their normal lives.
- We will prioritize projects focused on rebuilding homes and educational spaces
- We will carry out strategic planning, design and construction activities
- We will use sustainable construction materials with low environmental impact
- We will boost these communities’ economy by prioritizing the use of local materials, and labor.
HOLCIM INVITES YOU TO SUPPORT AFFECTED FAMILIES IN MEXICO! PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD AND AND JOIN OUR REBUILDING EFFORTS!
