On 19th September 2017, a major earthquake killed hundreds of people and caused catastrophic damages in Mexico City and the surroundings. 
Scouts of Mexico took immediate actions to assist the population, turning their headquarter into a collection and operation centre, delivering food and drinks to rescuers, assisting with clearing rubble and encouraging blood donation.

 Considering the magnitude of the damages, relief and recovery efforts will take time and will necessitate significant resources to help the Scouts continue their support to the population and live their ideal of being always ready to serve. Your donation will support their operations in the field allowing Scouts to assist in the ongoing rescue and relief efforts.
