Volunteers from the Jewish Agency's "Ten" project (Which means give in Hebrew) are in Mexico distributing food and physical aid to those in need in the wake of the magnitude 8.1 earthquake that hit the country last week.

The project had sent nine volunteers, a doctor and two staff members to the country and they were on hand to experience the tremor. 


During the relief effort, they packed and served about 1,000 food parcels, clean water and early childhood packages, which consist of diapers, milk substitutes and other necessities.
