Zapatista health promoter and herbalist in Aldama, Chiapas.

Supporting Zapatista Survival of COVID-19

Between March and August 2020, we successfully reached our beginning goal of over TWO MILLION MEXICAN PESOS (that’s over $90,000 USD!!). Now these funds are being used by the indigenous Zapatista communities in Chiapas to help fight the pandemic. Unfortunately, there is still much to do since the needs remain almost endless, so we are making plans for the long-term. Could you join our volunteer team and help out from home?
