Heifer International projects and families are all reported to be safe following Tuesday’s 7.4 magnitude earthquake that struck between the southern states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, Mexico. Heifer has offices in Oaxaca.

“We are fine after the earthquake,” said Diana Partida Arteaga, administrator. “It was … very rough with aftershocks, so we left the office. No substantial human or material damage has been reported, only minor building damage. Here in the office, everything is fine.”

Alejandro Lopez Musalem, country director, said, “We’re all right. It was a big shock. Fortunately, there was no damage.”

A number of people were injured in the temblor, but thankfully, despite the level of damage, there were no deaths.
