Eleven days after the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca were rocked by a powerful 8.1-magnitude earthquake on Sept. 9, the country was hit again with a 7.1-magnitude earthquake. The latest quake, which struck in Central Mexico, has already left more than 200 dead. As the country continues to try and find survivors among the rubble, many are turning to Facebook to help victims, volunteers, first responders, and anyone who needs it.

Isabelle Vazquez is one of those people trying to help. In a Facebook post, she revealed that she was bringing 300 lunch bags filled with sandwiches, fruit, water, crackers, and potato chips to victims.
