My brother Martin Alberto took the pics and put them together, so we could distribute and reach out for help.

Dear Larry Taub,


Recently Hurricane John hit Baja California Sur, Mexico. Some of the hardest hit communities along the peninsula have been Mulegé and Santa Rosalia. The International Community Foundation is currently accepting online tax deductible donations to help get emergency supplies down to these impacted communities. To donate online:

The funds will be given to the Manhattan Beach Sister City Committee, a registered 501c3 organization with existing ties to ICF. For more details about their organization please visit Rotary clubs in both Mulege and Santa Rosalia will be designated to receive and distribute goods

Funding will go to purchase emergency supplies including food, water, and medical supplies for these isolated communities.

In the coming days, ICF will be receiving a report from the State Government of Baja California Sur with a state-wide needs assessment by municipality highlighting the hurricane related damages. Details of the impacts of Hurricane John on Mulege can be found in today's edition of the San Diego Onion -

Thank you for your support,

Richard Kiy
President and CEO
