Salma Hayek donating $100,000 to earthquake relief efforts in Mexico

UPI News Service, 09/22/2017 

Salma Hayek said she is donating $100,000 to earthquake relief efforts in her home country.

"The people of my country have now suffered three natural disasters in a row. Many children and families are hurt and in terrible need," the Mexican-born actress said in a statement.

"I'm contributing $100,000 right now to support UNICEF's relief efforts which has teams on the ground responding."

Hayek also recalled living through Mexico's massive 8.2-magnitude earthquake in 1985 that took the lives of thousands of people.

"After the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City, I was evacuated from my building. A lot of friends died, including an uncle that was very, very close to me," she said in a video posted to Instagram.

"I have lived through the aftermath of a disaster of this magnitude and it's horrific."

On Tuesday, a 7.1-magnitude struck near Mexico's dense capital, Mexico City. Nearly 300 people have been counted dead so far.
