The British club is in the first line to help those affected by the recent natural disaster

WEST HAM MEXICO EARTHQUAKE / West Ham is helping those affected by the recent earthquake in Mexico. The British club is raising money by auctioning the shirts worn in this weekend's London derby. 

As reported by 'BBC', Mexican striker Javier Hernandez, 29, is leading the #YoXMexico initiative alongside international team-mate Miguel Layun.

On Tuesday, Mexico was struck by a 7.1 massive earthquake. Several people died and those who survived are in a precarious situation.

The two West Ham players decided to do something for their beloved country because “we noted that millions of Mexicans are on the streets helping their compatriots. This is very inspiring and we have to do our best to help them. What they are doing is unbelievable, especially because they are not asking anything in return. It's very painful to see our people suffering.”

Several West Ham shirts of the derby against Tottenham are available.
