After the hard impact of last week’s devastating 8.1 magnitude earthquake, low income communities are still waiting for federal assistance.
Only the Red Cross and other goodwill organizations are packing provisions and giving a basic medical assistance to those people injured and afected by the quake.
Residents in the country’s southern Oaxaca state are organizing to assist each other. Among these groups is a brigade of nearly 50 migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala, who are supporting communities in Mexico’s poverty-blighted Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca. This brigade is working without rest in a country where they usually face discrimination, distrust and abuse.
