Community

Our story

We are a community foundation located in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, and for 15 years have worked to fund projects that improve the quality of life for women and children in vulnerable situations in the Highlands region of Chiapas, in addition to contributing to long-term solutions to the main issues that affect them in the areas of health, education and the environment.

 

Issue

Due to the health crisis caused by COVID-19, the economic situation of many people in San Cristóbal has worsened. Many have lost their sources of income due to closures and shutdowns, which has exacerbated their already precarious situation, leading to difficulties for them to satisfy basic needs like having food.

 

Solution

Faced with this situation, a group of people, collectives and organizations committed to our community have come together to support the neediest families in this time of crisis. With the initiative Amigos por San Cris – Solidarity baskets for our community, we have decided to support local agro-ecological producers while providing baskets to families with this healthy and nutritious food.

 

Each solidarity basket costs 250 Mexican pesos (11 US dollars), which contains basic food that meet nutritional needs, fruit and vegetable seeds, as well as health supplies (face masks and disinfectants) and basic and essential health information. Thanks to your contribution we will be able to reach our goal and support around 140 families in San Cristóbal de las Casas.

 

Donate and it will multiply!

Allies of our community foundation have decided to match and double the amount we raise in this campaign – if we reach $1,500USD, they will donate another $1,500USD, up to a total of $3,000USDwith which we can support a total of 280 families!! 😀

 

What’s more, this May 5, 2020 (#GivingTuesdayNow) Hispanics in Philanthropy has also offered to match all donations made during the day until they’ve exhausted their matching funds, so there is an opportunity to even further multiply your donation! Donate and support us 😀 # DONA5EL5

 

Share!

So we reach our goal, please also share our campaign and encourage more people to contribute to this worthy cause.

 

Together we can do more! Amigos, this one’s for San Cris! 😀

¡¡Hemos llegado a la meta!! ¡¡Muchas gracias a todxs!! 😀

Les queremos compartir con gran alegría y mucha gratitud, que hemos llegado a la meta de $1,500 USD. Sin sus contribuciones no hubiera sido posible. Hemos sido testigos de la enorme solidaridad que existe y que esta no tiene límites. Hemos recibido apoyo desde dentro y fuera de la comunidad de San Cristóbal de las Casas y con ello podremos brindar alimentos saludables e insumos de salud a las 280 familias necesitadas que nos propusimos. Gracias también al valioso trabajo de varios voluntarios hemos podido armar y hacer entrega de algunas canastas, las familias han agradecido mucho la contribución de todos ustedes. En la Fundación Amigos de San Cristóbal seguiremos con esta labor y esperemos poder brindar más apoyos en estos momentos difíciles.

¡Muchas gracias!

We reached the goal!! Thank you very much to everyone!! 😀

We wanted to share with you, with great joy and much gratitude, that we have reached the goal of $1,500 USD. Without your contribution it would not have been possible. We have witnessed the enormous solidarity that exists and that has no limits. We have received support from inside and outside the community of San Cristóbal de las Casas, and with this we will be able to provide healthy food and health supplies to 280 families in need, which we set out to do. Thanks also to the valuable work of several volunteers, we have been able to assemble and deliver the first baskets – the families have greatly appreciated all of your contributions. At Community Foundation Amigos de San Cristóbal we will continue with this work and hope to be able to provide even more support in these difficult times.

Thank you!
