These materials include a slideshow about the group called the Topos (moles) and an article about Frida (the rescue dog) that are searching for and rescuing people trapped in the rubble following the 8.2 earthquake in Oaxaca and the 7.1 quake in Central Mexico.

Please pay special attention to the last two slides of the slideshow, which include information about two reputable organizations that are making a real difference in Oaxaca, and consider sharing the information with your students so that they can contribute if so moved.

The article about Frida was originally shared in the 9/18 issue of El mundo en tus manos, which includes more information about the earthquake in Oaxaca. Click here to view the 9/18 issue.
