Hoping to Raise $$ for Huichol Village Project in 2015

delia 2Yesterday, Tia’s founder met with Huichol leader, Mateo, who explained the great need for healthcare at their hard to reach communities in the far northern reaches of Jalisco.  Much of the year, the roads are impassible by vehicle and it often takes 18 hours or more to reach their villages when the roads are clear.  We are considering flying a small brigade to reach these communities, but of course, that will increase the cost of our project implementation.  Tens of thousands of Indigenous Huicholes, including little Delia (pictured above) live in villages scattered throughout the area.
