Updates from Paquip (Tecpan)


Today we were in Paquip, where we had a long and productive meeting with the local emergency council. This aldea has been severely affected. A major landslide wiped out the school and several houses and damaged the church. The road into Paquip is slow going, but passable
with heavy machinery from COVIAL working hard.

We finished distributing the 50 water filters in this community

Also we held a brief medical jornada. Many children and adults as well suffering from acute respiratory illnesses and diarrhea. This will probably worsen before it gets better. We will be back in Paquip for a full-day jornada on Friday to address these concerns.
