Two months after a powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake in south-east Mexico, SOS Children’s Villages is considering establishing a Child Friendly Space to provide support for children still affected by the devastation.
None of the more than 40 children at SOS Children’s Village Tehuacán were hurt during the 19 September earthquake and there was no major damage to the village. Families in the surrounding community programmes were also reported unharmed.
As more and more cases of the A/H1N1 virus, better known as swine flu are being reported all over the world and mainly in Mexico, SOS Children's Villages Mexico has taken preventive measures, even though there have been no cases within the programmes of the organisation so far.
So far, there have been no reports of cases of swine influenza in the SOS programmes.
SOS Children's Villages is continuing its emergency relief efforts for the victims of hurricane Stan in Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador. The organisation makes use of its various facilities in the three countries to provide help to children from neighbouring communities directly.
The emergency relief measures in Mexico are focusing on providing help to the people from Motozintla. This village is located in one of Mexico's hardest-hit areas, parts of which are still without any connection to the outside world. The main river in the area grew 50 times its normal size.
In southern Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, the situation in the disaster-struck areas is dramatic in view of hurricane Stan. SOS Children's Villages is working jointly with the authorities so as to offer efficient assistance to those affected. Several SOS Children's Villages help their neighbouring communities directly.
