Yesterday, 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.
These beautiful bracelets will soon be available for a suggested donation. Each lovely bracelet was handmade by the indigenous Huicholes of Mexico , unlike many of the factory produced pieces sold in stores, and they were paid a fair price so you can feel good about knowing you are helping them earn a decent living. We are working with several families in Mexico who are excited to have steady employment that will also help fund access to healthcare to those in dire need. More information on how you can get yours will be available soon!
