    The initial families supported by the Cabo Hurricane Fund in Baja Sur, Mexico share their stories from Hurricane Odile, and what housing reconstruction support means for their families and their communities. The Cabo Hurricane Fund is a unique collaboration between community-based organizations in Cabo San Lucas and the global community that supports post-disaster relief and rebuilding efforts in the wake of Hurricane Odile. These families live in the colonias outside of San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Because they represent some of the most devastated communities impacted by Odile, the vision of providing sustainable post-disaster housing was a priority. This was achieved through the design by CAPA Lab that utilizes rammed earth technique. The project is being managed and directed by Grassroots Global Development Foundation. www.grassrootsglobal.org
