Rural communities in Mexico still cut off by flood damage
The communities are flooded, with crops destroyed, some cattle washed away.
Leaders of the village note that they now face economic crisis because the people who live there are engaged in planting for their own consumption, and lost everything with the rain.
In the meantime, the Government Secretariat announced that “rains will continue in the next 24 hours, strongly in many of the affected areas. September 2013 is now the month with “most rains” in the last 125 years in the Mexico. 250 municipalities have been declared under emergency. Corn and bean crops are flooded and all of the harvest is lost.
World Vision is helping affected communities with food supplies, tents and Child Friendly Spaces to give children safe places to play.
