On September 19th, 2017 a 7.1 earthquake hit Central Mexico, the most affected areas are Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City. Currently, the majority of donated provisions are being sent to Mexico City, while Puebla and Morelos are being ignored by the media and government. Our goal is to provide aid to the most affected cities of the quake including Jojutla, Morelos and surrounding areas.
Several trusted sources including family and friends have confirmed reports that the provisions are not being distributed to the people in the affected areas. Trucks with goods are being intercepted by federal and local governments and not reaching the women, men and children of the poorest and remote areas hit by the quake. We (UndocuMedia) assure you that our provisions will get to these people!
We (UndocuMedia) are sending a caravan of 18-wheeler trucks full of provisions to the victims of the quake in Puebla and Morelos. They (UndocuMedia) are currently recruiting the support of several NGOs, celebrities, journalists, and other international organizations to guarantee the delivery of the provisions to the affected Mexican citizens. This won’t be enough and thus why we need your financial support to successfully deliver the goods to their final destination.
Your donations will be used to finance the maintenance of the 18-wheeler(s), pay for gas and transportation tariffs, cover any emergencies that might occur along the 3,000+ mile journey, and financially support the drivers.
We (UndocuMedia) appreciate your donation, love, and generosity towards our fellow brothers and sisters in Mexico.
