As we keep arriving at the Wixárika Indigenous Communities, we keep seeing how more and more people come closer to our project. In the last few months, we developed a new health campaign against children's anemia, for this, we took a small blood sample from all the children who are beneficiaries of our project, after that, we have a special device where we can read the values of hemoglobin in the blood and diagnose anemia. We had over 50 cases of children's anemia, and these cases received complete treatment and their whole families received treatment against stomach parasites.

By making this and keep carrying out our nutritional and educational program, we keep reaching over 1000 children in the Wixárika Indigenous Communities. We have learned a lot from the pandemic, about how we can be more efficient in our actions, and how important is to teach a prevention culture. This is why our interaction in these communities keeps having measures against Covid-19, we keep delivering different types of products, such as masks, alcohol, and soap. This is to assure our beneficiaries and personnel's safety.

We want to thank you very much for your donation, and we are going to stay at the frontline in this battle against hunger.

¡Best regards!

Our nutritional interaction
Our nutritional interaction

We keep reaching the communities that are most needed in the Sierra Wixárika, but, as inequality and poverty rises, the battle against hunger keeps getting tougher and tougher. Even in the most extreme conditions the ONI team have never ceased to arrive to the communities that we support. During the time since our last report we managed to arrive now to another community, called Huejuquilla el Alto, which is also a community habitated by the Indigenous Wixárika. In this new community we bring our complete nutritional interaction, and we alredy started to see the impact on the children that form part of our project.

We delivered to over 1,000 boys and girls the right amount of ONIformule, which helps them to grow amd develop in a healthy way. We keep fighting anemia in the region, alimentary insecurity, malnourishment and malnutrition. And we will keep arriving where is most needed.

Our attention keeps getting to the communitites were is most needed, now more than ever and with the repercutions of Covid-19, help is needed in this Wixárika Indigenous Communities. As we keep getting there in a monthly basis, we keep finding how rich and historic our originary cultures are, also, they are important in order to preserve our collective memory, traditions and history.

We have delivered alimentary security during this time and non stop to the communities mentionated above. This alimentary security is the key to ensure life and dignity, we delivered this to over 1000 children in the Sierra Wixárika, this through our alimentary complement "ONIformula" and our complete nutrition interaction, with antropometric measurements. As complement of this actions, we have delivered also our educational program, where we give information abouth healthier alimentary habits and how to accomplish them.

As you keep helping us, we keep figthing this big problematic where is most needed, and we will continue to rescue children from malnutrition and build together a space suited for development.

We want to express our gratitude with you, due to your donations, we continue to arrive to the Wixárika Indigenous Community in the northern Sierra of Jalisco, and we continue providing alimentary security and fighting children malnutrition in the region. Due to the pandemic, caused by Covid-19, it was challenging to us to start teaching and applying this new health and hygiene protocols, but with effort and dedication we keep arriving to this communities with the only objective of making a difference in their lives, and always taking care of the safety of our staff and the community. 

In the last 4 months we interacted with 1000 children, we weighted them, measure them and gave them their alimentary complement for every day consumption, we also gave 4 special educational talks to the mothers and fathers of this children, the new topics, on these educational talks, were the prevention strategies for Covid-19, best and nutritious ways to prepare and cook food, alimentary hygiene and its importance for health, also topics that relate to human development and healthy relationships between family members. 

Our interactions also include the delivery of our ONIfórmula, in these 3 months we manage to deliver 27,000 doses of our ONIformula, and we manage to bring alimentary security to 300 families. This interaction is vital for the community, due to the geographic location and the lack of access to water, we want to continue with our interaction in this community, that so much need it, and it would be impossible without you, we want to thank you and to invite you to keep donating to make this community life better and build together a space for development.
