Reconstruction Stories from Tetela del Volcán and Jojutla, Morelos.

One year after the earthquake of September 19, 2017, attention to the emergency in Tetela del Volcán and Jojutla, Morelos, continues. During this time, AMEXTRA has not only limited itself to the reconstruction of homes and the reactivation of family businesses, it has also helped victims rebuild their lives, at an emotional and community level.

To one side of the restaurant ¨El Portón de Carmelita¨ there is debris from what used to be the residence of the Morales family. Pieces of concrete, broken water pipes and wooden rafters are the remains of four generations of work. In front of this scene are Carmen and the machines that are removing waste from the homes that the 7.1 magnitude earthquake left behind in Jojutla, while dozens of people come and go.
