AMANC and indigenous communities

For AMANC, the original peoples have always been of utmost importance, because about 80% of our beneficiaries come from Pame and Huasteca communities, and they are located very far from the conurbation areas, for this reason they do not have all the basic services at first hand.

When a child is diagnosed with some type of cancer in the state of San Luis Potosí, they have to be transferred to the general hospital located in the capital of San Luis Potosí. When parents arrive, they face great obstacles such as the lack of a place to rest, little money for transfers and medicines, and sometimes they do not speak the same language. This causes that they sometimes desert in the treatment of their children.

That is where our work begins, encouraging families through different supports so that children with an oncological diagnosis receive the treatment in the most optimal way possible, providing support to more than 500 children annually, from 52 of the 58 municipalities of the state, in addition to some others from neighboring states. The supports that make up our accompaniment model are: help with medicines, transportation and transfers (by ambulance), emotional help, physiotherapy, food, lodging, funeral expenses; it is worth mentioning that the supports provided are totally free. Sometimes we carry out home visits in order to better understand the way of life of our beneficiaries, and thus provide the service that best suits their needs.
