Dear friends and colleagues:
Our country, Mexico, suffered two severe earthquakes on September 9th and 19th of 8.2 and 7.1 degrees respectively.
After 32 years of not experiencing that level of damage, they struck the capital, Mexico City, and several other towns in the states of Mexico, Puebla, Chiapas, Oaxaca and Morelos. Colonial and modern buildings collapsed in a diameter of 300km and explosions due to gas leaks were registered in some areas as well. There are hundreds of people from all ages, pets, and children waiting to be rescued from the debris, injured and struggling without electricity and water services.
The Mexican institutions and rescue brigades are making a gigantic effort to reach them on time.
Wish List with products like food, lights, batteries, diapers, etc., that will be delivered to the Red Cross.

The value of the Australian Dollar is much higher in Mexico, so even something small like 5 dollars can create a big impact and any kind of support is urgently needed today.
