The President of the DIF Yucatan, Sarita Blancarte de Zapata, received the contributions of the members of the Escudo Universitario, as well as of the Public Workers of the State, who supplied products such as curative kits, non-perishable foods, toiletries, and cat and dog food.
Prior to the departure, the director general of the social assistance organization, José Limber Sosa Lara, reported that for the second time he will support the state of Chiapas, now with a cargo of 32 tons thanks to the solidarity of Yucatecans.
“With this show of unity, we tell those who go through an emergency that the people of Yucatan are generous.
