Oaxaca and Chiapas, the most affected entities after the September 7 earthquake, are also the one with the most delays on the reconstruction, even when they are among the three entities that received the most money from the Fonden, to fix the damage caused by this earthquake and the one from September 19.

According to President Peña Nieto's 6th government report, they issued 11 disaster declarations and authorized the use of MXN $38,000 million.

Oaxaca is the state that received the most resources, with over MXN $7,000 million, but has only advanced 34.3% physically and 36.7% financially; it's followed with Morelos, who received MXN $5,758.9 million, with a physical advance of 38% and 43.4% financially; Chiapas is in third place, it received MXN $5,323 million and has advanced 39.7% and 37.4%; Puebla received MXN $3,548 million and reported a physical and financial advance of 67.1% and 65%.

Mexico City received MXN $3,244 million, and reports a physical and financial advance of 42.4% and 39.9%; The State of Mexico obtained MXN $2,468 million and has an advance of 43.4% and 45.3%; Guerrero received MXN $1,642 million and has advanced 46.7% and 41%; Tlaxcala was allocated MXN $287 million and has advanced 70.6% and 62.5%, and Veracruz received MXN $58,800 million and reported an advance of 40% and 33.58%.

A year after the 8.2 earthquake that struck Mexico on September 7, 2017, there are over 8,000 victims who haven't received financial support to rebuild their homes: 3,000 in Chiapas, and 5,000 in Oaxaca.


Yet, nor the Chiapas and Oaxaca's governments have freed the resources necessary to rebuild the survivors' homes.

Delays

In Oaxaca, besides the 5,000 victims, there are other 3,846 homes that are about to be rebuilt, and they hadn't done it before because there was a lack of resources.

Another delay is the other 400 victims who haven't received their Fonden card, confirmed Alejandro Murat. According to the Bansefi, the reasons are because the beneficiaries don't attend the appointment, mistakes in their information or incorrect addresses.
