Red Cross President Visits Flooded Regions in Mexico
Date:11/9/2007

le have responded generously to this tragedy, and my visit to Tabasco is evidence of their support, and builds on the close relationship between the American Red Cross and the Mexican Red Cross," said Everson. "Also, I'm glad the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico is here to show the strong U.S. government support for our neighbors in Mexico."

The American Red Cross and the Mexican Red Cross have a rich history of helping each other during times of disaster. During the recent wildfires in Southern California, the Mexican Red Cross sent ten trained workers to assist the American Red Cross in reaching out to the Spanish speaking community. Following Hurricane Dean, the American Red Cross provided financial assistance to the Mexican Red Cross through USAID's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and sent a relief worker to Mexico to support emergency operations. Furthermore, this partnership worked successfully during the American Red Cross response to Hurricane Katrina when the Mexican Red Cross sent 20 relief workers to assist our response.

Said the Governor of the State of Tabasco, Andres Raphael Granier Melo, "The Red Cross saved my life when I was 14 years old, they picked me up in the streets for an accident I had and I have always wanted to help the Red Cross. Everyone here in Tabasco knows the Red Cross, everyone knows someone who has been helped by the Red Cross. A lot of people are thankful to the Red Cross because of their assistance."

"This is a neighbor in need and you always reach out to neighbors in need -- it's a basic humanitarian concept," said Everson. "The Mexican Red Cross just helped us with the wildfires in Southern California. Now, it's our time to help them."
