Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
On September 7, 2017, one of the most lethal earthquakes in Mexican history, an alarming 8.2 magnitude quake, shuddered near the southern state of Chiapa. Only 12 days later and a few hundred miles away, a 7.1 magnitude quake rocked central Mexico, toppling buildings, breaking gas mains, knocking out electricity and sparking fires across the city and other towns in central Mexico.
All Hands and Hearts - Smart Response has identified one of the hardest hit communities, the small village of El Jicarero, who lost their school and the opportunity to build a brighter future for their children through education. Now our team is on the ground and partnering with Happy Hearts Fund Mexico to reconstruct the Narciso Mendoza Primary school, which will include 6 new classrooms, water, sanitation and hygiene facilities and a computer lab, alongside landscaping and fencing for the school. The new classrooms will enable at least 400 children to go back to school over the next 10 years. Upon completion, this will be our tenth disaster resilient school rebuilt in Mexico.
To be able to support the financial aspects of this project, including but not limited to construction material, tools and equipment I have set up these fundraising website. I will really appreciate any monetary contribution that you make in support of this project and its timely completion, fulfilling the dream of these students to be able to go to a safe and disaster-resilient school.
You can follow the work of this organization on Instagram at #AllInPurple and my own personal journey, also on Instagram, at #DanielInMexico, so that you can see how your donation is being spent.
I sincerely thank you in advance for all of your support.
