As rescue crews continue to dig for survivors in the latest earthquake in Mexico, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is connecting with its ecumenical partners to support recovery efforts and develop long-term response plans. The quake on September 19th, which registered 7.1 on the Richter Scale, was the second to strike the region in less than two weeks, causing buildings and houses to collapse, killing or trapping hundreds.

PDA is partnering with the Mexican Communion of Reformed and Presbyterian Churches for emergency response and capacity building. PDA will also be working with ecumenical partners to support their recovery efforts.

 

Gifts to support PDA's response to the earthquakes in Mexico can be designated to DR000014.
