This week’s PD News focused on nations, organizations, and celebrities helping people in need. After the 7.1 earthquake in Mexico, IsraAID sent humanitarian relief to the rural surroundings of Mexico City. Meanwhile, Hurricane relief in Texas and the Caribbean continued. Pitbull loaned his private jet for Puerto Rican aid, and the Burning Man festival donated remaining bicycles to the affected areas. Additionally, aid organizations lobbied the Myanmar government for access to people in Rakhine State.
