Our thoughts are with the people of Mexico after a 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico City, causing loss of life and damage.

Mercy Corps stands ready to help should the Mexican government request our assistance. We have a network of small business partners in Mexico, and we are assessing the possibility of helping these businesses that are critical to the recovery of their communities.

To support our work now and for the future, please consider making a gift to our Humanitarian Response Fund.
