Helping the people affected by the Mexico City earthquake

With the recent 7.1 earthquake which caused extensive damage in Mexico City and its surrounding areas leaving hundreds dead, thousands of people displaced, and billions of dollars in damage, VIVA, @TradeQwik, Muncapital, and NAOME are coordinating efforts to raise critical funds for the people and infrastructure affected by this devastating earthquake.

Francisco Santill√°n, a C-Level executive for VIVA Holdings Mexico Operations and NAOME, will be visiting Mexico City to see the devastation first hand, and develop the best plan of action to distribute the collected funds. Details will be posted on our website and social media outlets.

Sending funds is more important than sending “stuff”

  • First, an assessment is needed to prioritize what’s needed (water, food, shelter)
  • It is more efficient and cost-effective to buy locally than to ship items especially if infrastructure is compromised
  • Buying locally helps the local economy
  • Sending unneeded items poses a challenge on where to store it in disaster areas
