Salma Hayek donated $100k to victims of Mexico's natural disasters on Wednesday، daily mail reported.

The actress، 51، posted an Instagram video asking others to join in the relief efforts for her homeland that was struck with by a hurricane and two earthquakes.

'The people of my country have now suffered three natural disasters in a row. Many children and families are hurt and in terrible need،' she captioned the video.

'Many children and families are hurt and in terrible need. I'm contributing $100،000 now to UNICEF which has teams on the ground responding،' she continued.

'Please join me and contribute what you can and thank you.'

On September 8، Hurricane Katia made landfall near Tecolutla، Mexico، about 200 miles east-northeast of Mexico City.


As a Category 1 storm، it was relatively tame compared with Hurricane Irma. However، two people died from the storm.

A few hours earlier، a massive earthquake hit the country farther south in the country and killed 60 people.

However، the second major earthquake to strike Mexico in less than two weeks has caused catastrophic damage in the country’s capital.

The magnitude 7.1 quake tumbled highways and crumbled buildings.

The death toll is at 200.

Salma's generous donation and public appeal for help will hopefully inspire others to lend a hand to those in need.
