Development and Peace – Caritas Canada Collecting Donations to Provide Emergency Aid for Those Affected by Earthquakes in Mexico

Development and Peace – Caritas Canada Collecting Donations to Provide Emergency Aid for Those Affected by Earthquakes in Mexico

Last Tuesday, a powerful earthquake registering 7.1 on the Richter scale hit Mexico City, the country’s capital, causing the deaths of at least 286 people and the collapse of many buildings and infrastructure. The earthquake struck barely two weeks after a violent 8.2-magnitude earthquake hit the south of the country, greatly affecting Oaxaca State and killing at least 90 people, and the country is continuing to experience aftershocks. Development and Peace – Caritas Canada has launched operations with local organizations to provide emergency aid for those affected.
