Clothing was provided at various locations around the municipality by the DIF, social service agency
   The President of the DIF, Marthy Vargas Leon de Magana, led the delivery of new clothing to the communities of Francisco May and the Zona Agricola (Agricultural Zone). These are on the mainland area of Isla Mujeres.
     The garments were donated to the City government by the SHCP (Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público) through the SAE (Servicio de Administración y Enajenación de Bienes), which are federal agencies. The donations included clothing and footwear for children, babies, and adults, as well as sandals and underwear.
      Sra Vargas said that in the upcoming week, she and her husband, Mayor Agapito Magana Sanchez, will deliver donations to colonia La Guadalupana on the island. Delivery of clothing is of great benefit to the residents of the municipality, and at this time two locations were covered, and in the future they intend to reach more families who have low incomes and are in vulnerable situations.

       Local priest Raul Sanchez Alonso announced that there will be a large meeting, with praise and worship, at the Sacred Heart Chapel on Saturday, October 10th, featuring international singer and preacher Cuco Chavez, who just completed a tour in South America. The meeting will begin at 6:30pm at the chapel in La Gloria, opposite the Mundaca Hacienda, and the organizers expect it to sell out.
     Cuco Chavez is a native of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and just toured in Ecuador and Panama, as part of an international tour. He has a schedule of activities throughout the year offering hope and inspiration, to Catholics who have left the church or joined other religions, as well as having retreats for married couples and for youths, and attending to people with drug addictions, according to testimonials.

     Paving has concluded on the section of road between the Naval Housing Unit and Mundaca Hacienda, and motorists are complaining about vibrations and unevenness throughout this kilometer, which they say was smoother before the work. Drivers are also complaining about the speed bump which was installed, saying it is not finished like the others. They want the paving work inspected and reviewed by professionals and municipal authorities, and then they want it improved.

Sr. Lima explained the equipment and how to operate it properly.
    The radio equipment receives the frequencies used by boaters, fishermen, and divers who ply the waters around Isla Mujeres. As we know, they are subject to frequent accidents, especially the lobster fishermen who suffer decompression. Brand names and specifications of the equipment are given.
      The Lima family has made donations to the health sector at different times, including the land where the IMSS (Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social) facility is located, and a chair for Dentistry facility at the General Hospital.

From Sally MargolisHi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time!
