Testimony

"I am very thankful for these peopel who have troubled themselves to bring us food and inspiring words….”

“I am very thankful for these people who have troubled themselves to bring us food and inspiring words. I thank them for thinking of us, for not forgetting us, and we hope they come back since we still do not know when we can go back to our communities. Thank you very much for all that you have done for us..”

"Amextra’s support was a huge help. The fact that people all the way from Mexico City were interested in helping people who lived so far away from them really surprised me...”

The San Miguel Amoltepec el viejo community had been buried by a mudslide. The infrastructural damages were significant—people lost their homes, furniture, crops and livestock. The community was living in the open air, under tarps and makeshift shacks, in cold temperatures. In that moment, Amextra intervened and supported the community with provisions so they could eat. Later, Amextra began to work on pilot projects with the families. Amextra’s support was a huge help. The fact that people all the way from Mexico City were interested in helping people who lived so far away from them really surprised me.
