Earthquake Relief Fund

RAINWATER BRIGADE

Mexico City and its surrounding communities were devastated recently by a massive earthquake. Hundreds were killed and many thousands lost their homes and possessions. Houses which took decades of work and investment to build were destroyed beyond repair in 30 seconds.

Despite the grief, civil society has responded with unbelievable solidarity, enthusiasm and effectiveness. Millions of people have mobilized and have spent the past week doing everything imaginable to help. We are working to rebuild our communities ourselves, with NGOs, businesses and individuals organizing in their areas, contributing with whatever they know how to do.

At Isla Urbana we work on sustainable, autonomous access to clean water. It so happens that entire districts in Xochimilco, where we have been working for years, have not received any water from the grid since the earthquake. In response, we have developed the RAINWATER BRIGADE, an emergency water relief fund designed to bring water to affected areas through the installation of rainwater harvesting systems and water purification technology for contaminated water.

In no way does this page cover all of the need but we ask YOU to please donate, help us spread the word, attend supportive events such as 10/10 at La Descarga Hollywood, 10/21 at La Fonda on Wilshire and/or consider opening up your own campaign page through this platform (click "Start a campaign" from the tab above). Other ways to give below.

Thank you so much,
