Reportedly, the Mexican Red Cross is responding around the clock to widespread flooding in the southern portion of Mexico, but at this time, the American Red Cross has not been asked to cross the border to assist nor have they been asked to collect goods to support the response.
The American Red Cross has activated their “Restoring Family Links” program to help families in the U.S. reconnect with loved ones in Mexico.
Immediate family members who are not U.S. citizens are urged to contact the American Red Cross to begin the Restoring Family Links process.
The loved ones being sought should have been in regular contact with their relatives in the U.S. prior to the disaster.
