Last Saturday, September 30th we hosted RadioTon, a live radio broadcast in collaboration with Mega Boston. What an inspiring day full of love, friendship, solidarity. We had people dropping off donations and prying with us. That weekend our young dancers performed at several events and together we were able to raise $2755 dollars. We also collected medical supplies that will be ship to Mexico free via Aeromexico.

La comunidad Mexicana de New England y amigos de Mexico te invita a unir fuerzas para recaudar fondos para ayudar directamente a familias afectadas por los temblores en Oaxaca y otras zonas rurales afectadas por los terremotos.

Actualmente las familias en Mexico están en necesidad de refugio por lo tanto, estámos planeando proporcionar tiendas de campaña, (para las familias),
Baños y cocinas ecológicas; Plantas eléctricas; Purificadores y filtros de agua; Camas plegables o cunas; Guantes de tela, suministros médicos, alimentos y material o apoyo necesarios para ayudar a los niños a recibir actividades educativas y de enriquecimiento. En esta campaña nos centraremos en la comunidad de Huamuchil una pequeña ciudad del distrito de Juchitan y otras pequeñas comunidades en Oaxaca que aún no han recibido apoyo.

Si desea ser voluntario en la logística y organizar y coordinar a otros voluntarios, favor de comunicarse con nosotros a través de nuestro Grupo de Facebook en Mexicanos en Solidaridad.
