The Story

Four Purple Cactus employees were born and raised in Huamuchil, Mexico. Their mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, and grandmothers and grandfathers still live there.   

On September 7th, Huamuchil \ wäˈmüˌchēl \, a small fishing village (population approx. 2,000) located on the southern coast of the State of Oaxaca, was struck by an 8.2 magnitude earthquake. The people of this village were some of the hardest hit and are in desperate need of shelter, food, and water. Most of the homes have been destroyed and most of the village remains evacuated due to life-threatening aftershocks. They are suffering from a lack of electricity, drinkable water, food and medicine.   

Your donation will provide immediate relief as well as support for long term recovery. These funds will help all village residents purchase water, food, medicine, bedding, and personal items. Money raised will also go toward repairing and rebuilding the homes and businesses in the village.
