In collaboration with the federal government, the government of Chiapas, led by Governor Manuel Velasco Coello, provided assistance to Maya indigenous families in the municipality of Chenalhó, who live in conditions of extreme poverty.
With a total investment of over 6 million pesos ($360,000 USD), through various schemes of social care and rural support, indigenous men and women from 21 sites in the Altos Tsotsil Tseltal region received aid meant to boost consumption and agricultural production.
Through the implementation of assistance programs and social inclusion the government aims to provide timely care to families most in need.
The partnership between the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto and the state government will continue, said Velasco.
He stressed that his administration will continue working to build a closer relationship with indigenous communities, always with full respect for their customs.
