The European Union (EU) has earmarked more than 158,000 euros to help 1,640 children and 41 teachers in the southern state of Oaxaca after their school was damaged in last September’s earthquakes.

The money will be channeled through the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), and administered by UNESCO to help install 41 tents that will serve as temporary classrooms so that the students can return to their studies.

The Sept. 7 and Sept 19 earthquakes, with an 8.2 magnitude and 7.1 magnitude respectively on the Richter Scale, left more than 6 million Mexican children without classrooms.
