This is absolutely amazing… Victoria’s generous donation challenge (see previous post) garnered more than $10,000 in donations for Sergio Castro’s humanitarian work!! Muchísimas gracias to Victoria for her incredible generosity, and Apple Computers as well, for kicking in matching funds.
We spoke with Don Sergio by phone last week, and he sends his heartfelt thanks to all of you who donated from around the globe. We’d also like to add a “big thanks” to those who contributed at the El Andalón screening in Aptos that week. These donations make a huge, positive impact in the lives of hundreds of patients in and around San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas.
It’s wonderful to see that the network of folks helping Don Sergio and the people of Chiapas is growing each month. And we’re honored that our modest documentary has been able to play a role in the process.
Victoria’s challenge is over, but the medical needs of the people of Chiapas continue. If you’d like to make a donation, or learn more, please visit the Yok Chij webpage.
