The month of September 2017 will not be easy to forget for the Mexican people. Two earthquakes which struck just 12 days apart, on 7 and 19 September, left thousands of families torn apart, 471 people dead and over 12 million otherwise affected. Most victims were in the city of Mexico itself, but there were also many in other states, such as Cuernavaca, Oaxaca and Puebla. We still retain vivid memories of buildings collapsing like a house of cards, of roads and bridges destroyed – and at the same time we recall the solidarity shown by this country in drawing on all it's resources and tirelessly searching for survivors amid the ruins.
