Important announcement regarding our Mexico programs:
The 8.1 earthquake on the evening of September 7 woke everyone up at our programs in Oaxaca, Mexico. But everyone is safe and sound. Our Mexico Program Manager, Gaby Chavez Hernandez, said it lasted for a few minutes and the kids at our children's home were pretty confused. School is cancelled for most of the kids due to some damage at their school buildings, but they have been continuing their studies with a tutor who comes everyday. Please keep everyone in Oaxaca and Chiapas in your thoughts as the damage is assessed and many communities in southern Mexico attempt to rebuild.
