Our brigade and the Tia team visited Rosa Amarillo, which is known for their milk and their small batch, family cheese makers who specialize in asadero and adobera. If you’ve ever had queso fundido in Mexico, it was probably made with asadero. The brigade provided free medical consultations as well as health education in the schools in the area. Tia will have some new Promotoras (Community Health Workers) from this region, who will graduate at the end of the week.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the government in Tizapan el Alto! They have overwhelmed us with their hospitality and generosity. They truly care for their people and have bent over backwards to make us welcome, including helping us out with great food and lodging. They also provided daily transportation for the Promotoras who live quite far from the training location. Many communities greet our group with agua frescas and snacks. Everyone giving what they are able. We will never forget this project and its people!
