HURRICANE RELIEF FUNDRAISER for Oaxaca, MEXICO 

MAY 30th, Hurricane Agatha (category 2) hit the Oaxacan Coast of Mexico. The strongest hurricane there since 1949. Reaching peak winds of 175 km/hr.

Severe winds and rainfall triggered flash floods and mudslides, resulting in the loss of at least 20 lives and the destruction of many homes, roads, schools, and businesses. Oaxaca is one of the poorest states in Mexico, where conditions have long been dire for many families. The pandemic brought further hardships. And in the wake of the hurricane, many have lost not only their houses but all their belongings.They are in immediate need of food, water, housing, and medical supplies.
