Story_Resiliencia

Unión Hidalgo, Oaxaca, a person of the community picks up the rubble after the 2017 earthquake.

To diminish these risks, we encourage prevention through alliances with the government and other civil organizations, so they can act in case of an emergency. We do this by arranging trainings with specialized groups, like the Red Cross or Topos. 

In the face of a natural disaster, we support communities -together with our ally Cadena, A.C.-, and seek to lessen the damages, with an organic approach. As a response of the earthquakes of September 2017, we decided to collaborate with one of the most affected communities, Unión Hidalgo, in Oaxaca:

  • Reconstruction of schools and markets.
  • Design of new houses with better structure and resilient materials.
  • An AXA microinsurance to cover fires, earthquakes and flooding, for all the reconstructed houses.
