A quick report from the field

Beautiful green Chiapas
Beautiful green Chiapas

Greetings from Mexico City!
Our team of volunteers is in the city preparing for upcoming projects here and in Chiapas State in Southern Mexico. The next few weeks are going to be busy and productive as we continue programs we have worked on before.
On Saturday, June 15, we are attending a celebration of a nice new set of latrines for a school and community center we have supported for many years.  The new latrines for the boys and girls will be clean and secure and have running water for them to wash their hands.  The community members came together to build the latrines and will be celebrating with us.

It was your financial and moral support over the years that made the completion of this project possible.

On Sunday we are going to have a reunion for some of our Mexican friends who have helped us. Over the past 10 years we have had many volunteers us with our projects, they are proud to help their communities and their countries. They are young adults who have come from many different parts of the country to participate. They help with the teaching and translating  and often speak special dialects and languages.  Because of their training, after we return home they continue the programs benefiting their communities. It should be a pleasant afternoon.

Then on next morning we leave for Chiapas for two weeks of programs working with partner organizations.  We have visited there before and will be following up on previous projects.  We will  visit small communities and show how to test the water for contamination and how to make it safe. Families will learn simple ways to keep their children healthy.  We also work with local schools to make sure they have safe water and sanitation for their students.  On your map of Southern Mexico we will first be in San Cristobal de las Casas, then in Ocosingo in the mountains and finally spending several days in Palenque near the famous Mayan ruins. It’s a fascinating and culturally rich part of Mexico and we always enjoy the friendly greetings we receive.

With luck and internet connections I will try to give you an update from Chiapas while we are there.
Again, as always, your contributions are what has kept us going. 

As we say:  Agua Pura Para El Pueblo, una familia a la vez.
