Valladolid, Yucatán, .- As part of the twinning ceremony between the cities of Valladolid, Yucatán and Asheville, North Carolina, on January 21, 50 wheelchairs were delivered to low-income disabled people, senior citizens and public institutions of Valladolid.
Mayor Alpha Tavera Escalante, accompanied by Karon Korp, general president of the sister cities of Asheville, delivered the first wheelchair to Wiliam Och Cob, a 7 year-old boy, originally from the community of Popolá.
