Appeal Target: US$ 589,114

Geneva, 11 February 2008

Dear Colleagues,

Between October 28 and November 5, 2007 torrential rains, more than 1,200 millimeters of water in a three-day period, poured down on Tabasco and Chiapas, Mexico. A high tide in the Gulf of Mexico prevented the rising waters of the principal rivers from emptying into the sea. 25,900 square kilometers, 80% of the plain of the state of Tabasco, were inundated, including 700 towns and most of the capital city, Villahermosa.

The damages are huge.
