The first post to the blog must begin with a huge thank you to everyone supporting the work Emily and I have come to do in Mexico. The money and supplies you all donated are going directly to CACTUS-Center for Communal Support-based in La Mixteca region of Oaxaca.
Betty from CACTUS met with us today in Mexico City. It was amazing to see her and her two kids who she hadn't seen in month. Betty talked to Emily and I for hours today about the situation in Oaxaca and more specifically in La Mixteca.
Tonight we leave for Huajuapan de Leon in La Mixteca region of Oaxaca to see for ourselves what's happening there.
More concrete info to come soon.
