In the aftermath of the Sept. 19, 2017 earthquake in Central Mexico, the DRI Foundation has provided financial assistance to the International Community Foundation.
The earthquake, which hit on the 32nd anniversary of the historic 1985 Mexico City earthquake, resulted in damage in the Mexican states of Puebla and Morelos as well as the Greater Mexico City area, including the collapse of more than 40 buildings. Building collapses claimed 370 lives, including 228 in Mexico City, and injured more than 6,000.
The DRI Foundation supported recovery efforts by making a donation to the International Community Foundation (ICF) – For Mexico Earthquake Relief, which aids Mexico City, Puebla, and Morelos. ICF is working with local organizations in these regions to cover short-term basic needs and longer term reconstruction costs.
