Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal continued in Dzilam de Bravo with the distribution of school supplies and uniform kits through the Impulso Escolar program and also delivered equipment for the local Cultural Space.

Accompanied by Mayor Daniel Armando Herrera Rivera, the governor highlighted his commitment to transform Yucatan, prioritizing those most in need.

Vila Dosal emphasized that this support goes to those who need it most and is focused on consolidating Dzilam de Bravo as an attractive tourist destination, capable of attracting more visitors and providing additional income to local families.

Support for Dzilam de Bravo’s fishermen

The governor reiterated his commitment to the fishing sector by expanding the Peso a Peso program, originally designed for farmers and cattle ranchers, to include fishermen.

He also acknowledged their cooperation in overcoming the damage caused by tropical storms. Vila Dosal provided support with materials and the fishermen contributed their labor in the reconstruction of the dock.

The Peso a Peso aquaculture program of the Secretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture (Sepasy) allocated more than 6 million pesos to benefit more than 650 fishermen and fisherwomen.
