To keep helping people that have lost their homes and in response to requests from the Oaxaca and federal governments, Yucatan sent the hammocks to provide a safe and dry place to sleep….
YUCATAN — On Sunday October 1, Yucatan made a special shipment to Oaxaca of 2,500 hammocks made by local artisans, to support families who were left homeless by the earthquake and are now in temporary shelters, announced Governor Rolando Zapata Bello.
After leading the delivery of resources from the program of Development for Social Economy, the governor said that of the total of these traditional objects, 450 were made by artisans of Teabo.
Mexicans have difficult times now, you know. They made a specific request for people who today have nowhere to sleep and asked for hammocks.
“That makes me pride because Yucatan will always be present with solidarity, with an art and craftsmanship that is now available to brothers who need it,” said the head of the governor.
In this regard, the director of the House of Handicrafts (CAEY), Beatriz Peralta y Chacón, detailed that the pieces were elaborated by inmates of the Center for Social Reinsertion (Cereso) of Mérida and craftsmen of 13 municipalities: Valladolid, Ticul, Mayapán, Teabo, Chumayel, Cantamayec, Maní, Tixkokob, Chichimilá, Tecoh, Dzidzantún, Homún and Huhí.
In view of the situation, the federal authorities, at the request of the Government of the State of Oaxaca, requested that we send them hammocks, since temporary shelters were provided for those who became homeless, she commented.
The official added that contrary to what commonly happens in this type of emergency, this time they didn’t give mats to the people, due to the rainfall, which has also been felt in that territory, complicating the circumstances. The mats are placed on the floor, but, with the rain, they get wet. Instead, the hammock are stored when they finish sleeping, it is better for them, she concluded.
