Chihuahua, Chih.- A food collection in favor of Bawinocachi was held today in Urueta Park, following the effects of the fires recorded in various communities of the Sierra.

From 9:00 a.m. the collection of salt, coffee, water, sugar, sardines, maseca, flour, tuna, lentils and rice began.

In addition, beans, oatmeal, juices, soup, oil, crackers, canned vegetables, Inca butter, tomato puree and preserves were collected.

At least 50 families from Bawinocachi Township, Bocoyna Township, were affected by a forest disaster that destroyed much of the plots on which their corn was grown, a staple of the family’s livelihood.

“To date, this fire is under control, but the community still needs a lot of support,” said Citlali Quintana, one of the organizers of the collection.

If you weren’t able to attend today, there is a fixed point at Calle 19 #3006 in Colonia Obrera.

Donations can also be made to account: 5579070120796845, in the name of María Zenaida Juárez Herrera.
