Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the powerful earthquake that hit Mexico yesterday. We thank all our supporters for their messages of concern at this difficult time.

Our Girlstown in Chalco just outside Mexico City suffered some structural damage, but thankfully no injuries to any of the Sisters, teaching staff or children. The extent of the damage to the school buildings is being assessed now.

Please continue to keep all our children and, in particular their families, based in the local communities around Mexico City, in your thoughts.

We will report soon with more updates. In the meantime please contact us with any questions on 0207 629 3050 or email us at enquiries@worldvillages.org.uk
