Dear supporters, we want to share some updates about the development of the project that you helped us to realize.

Finally we went to the Pacific Coast region of Chiapas in February, for the scheduled first aid course, with ten people of a local cooperative dedicated to fishing and tourism.

Most of the participants were women and we have to admit that we had a lot of fun in the hot setting of the workshop and surrounded by the curiosity of children and dogs passing by. The interest in having a basic intervention tool in medical emergencies was very high, because the medical care centers are far from the village where the cooperative is located...so we also returned there in March, to delve into some topics such as taking vital signs.

In april we provided, in San Cristobal de las casas, another two first aid courses with a human rights civil association that works in areas of many conflicts in chiapas and that needs tools to deal with possible accidents during their work in support of local communities.

This month of May we will take a break from the first aid courses, to dedicate ourselves to the other water projects of our association Aguacero and deliver the ready water filters that are just waiting to reach their final destination.

We say goodbye for the moment, always remembering with great affection your support

We want to start by saying how much we appreciate your collaboration until now.

Thanks to the support of all of you, the project desired by the Aguacero team continues to move towards its intended goals, sharing basic knowledge about first aid and bringing water filters to rural and indigenous communities here in Chiapas.

The work schedule for the next three months is almost ready. We have bought the components to make the filters we need for the 20 families of a village in the jungle and we are assembling them in our warehouse.

We also saw with concern the humanitarian emergency that migrants are going through in this part of their way to northern Mexico and we decided to be aware of their needs and also to support by donating ten water filters to local organizations that work here in Chiapas, trying to make their way less painful.

In February, the first first aid course is scheduled in the Pacific Coast region, with ten people of a local cooperative dedicated to fishing and tourism. We are very excited about this.

We were updating ourselves for the workshops and we gave two first aid workshops here in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas, strengthening the local communities in their knowledge to face health adversities.

The staff of Aguacero Tecnologia y Salud Comunitaria is ready to start the challenges of the new year and we are happy because we feel accompanied by all of you.

Please continue to support us!
