In Mexico: FMSC Meals Delivered after Earthquake

In Mexico: FMSC Meals Delivered after Earthquake

“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” – Psalm 31:24

Earlier this month, an 8.1 magnitude earthquake struck Mexico, killing 96 people and devastating parts of Oaxaca and Chiapas States.

It was the strongest earthquake in living memory, according to news reports. At least 16,000 homes were damaged or destroyed in the two regions.

Shortly after, Hurricane Katia also came to Mexico’s shores, causing mudslides and flooding.

Feed My Starving Children’s partner Buckner International has begun distributing FMSC meals that were already in-country at the time of the earthquake.

These natural disasters and their effects are adding to Mexico’s current struggles.

The CIA World Factbook lists high underemployment, unequal income distribution and few advancement opportunities for the largely indigenous population in the impoverished southern states as some of Mexico’s economic and social concerns.

At war with each other, Mexico's powerful drug-trafficking organizations have caused tens of thousands of drug-related homicides in the past decade.

Despite these struggles, this is only one part of Mexico's story. It is a land rich with history, tradition and beautiful culture.

So far this year, FMSC has shipped more than 2 million meals to five partners on the ground in Mexico. Please pray for these faithful partners providing hope through education, discipleship and food programs.
