  • ​Several Sites Team Up to Help Rebuild “Forgotten Communities” in Central Mexico

    Inteva supports more than 150 charitable organizations worldwide, but what about those individuals and families in our communities who are not reached by charitable groups?
    That’s the question our Puebla team members asked themselves following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that affected five states in Mexico in September. While organizations such as the American Red Cross and UNICEF immediately began supporting the rebuilding of homes and businesses in large cities, there were few organized activities helping the smaller communities. So our team made that their mission – one that quickly grew.
