A man is pulled out of the rubble alive following a quake in Mexico City on September 19, 2017.

Devastating earthquakes struck Mexico this fall, killing nearly 400 and flattening communities that were already struggling. The rebuilding effort will take years.

HOW TO HELP

Oxfam America has an emergency fund for earthquake relief.

The International Medical Corps is caring for people's medical needs in the wake of the quakes.

Save the Children takes a "child-centred" approach to disaster relief.
