Covid cases still on the rise.
The following narrative was written by the women in Chajul:
“This is how the houses of Xachboj are. To get there, first it takes about an hour by vehicle from Chajul to a place called Tchulul tze ‘on a dirt road, then you walk two hours to get to the Xachboj Village, where 22 families live, and to get to Santa Rosa you have to walk another hour by foot. 32 families live there. The people who came to receive their corn told us these villages are forgotten by the Mayors of Chajul who have never kept their promises to open the road, and in these times of the pandemic they are not helping them either, so they are very grateful for the support they gave him, since corn is more essential for them.”
Some were able to use their horses to carry their loads, others did not. One quintal (100 pounds) of dried corn and 10 pounds of salt was given to each family.
After the delivery of corn and salt, the women made people a little more aware of covid and the importance of hygiene and organization of the communities.
