I have been avoiding the question "How was your trip to Mexico?" for the past week. There are not enough words in the English language to describe my experience. It was both heart warming and heart breaking at the same time. On the one hand, the village of Muchucuxcah has been working with an amazing NGO called HST to learn sustainable and organic farming, and has been celling their hand made crafts in the fair trade market. Because of this the village has reached a point where they have the first children ever from the village going to college! there is still malnutrition, where the medical care is a doctor, a nutritionist, and a dentist who are each there for a year of service as part of their scholarship. When we went to the clinic, a pregnant woman came in her husband had injured himself with a machete, and needed help. The doctor wasn't in that day, and so the dentist who we were talking to went to stitch up the leg. When we asked if he had been trained for this he said he had learned on the job. He also told us that many of the people only speak Mayan not Spanish so often times when people come; there is a language barrier. We saw a place where the men leave their homes and move to Cancun, to work in the hotel industry with hopes of sending money home to their families, and often times they barely make enough to get by themselves let alone sending money home. In my time in Muchucxcah I realized in a very concrete way how my spending affects the rest of the world. I realized that while I have my ideals and beliefs--that workers should be paid fair wages, should be treated with respect, that my spending practices only partically mirrored my ideological beliefs. Wherever we fall on the political spectrum, we can all agree no one should be mistreated, no one should go hungry. I am taking steps to consciously think about my spending and my consuming : buying produce at farmers markets, supporting CSA's (community sustained agriculture), buying as many goods locally as possible, and by donating to AJWS, who gives grants to NGO's worldwide who support local communities and teach and empower the underprivileged to work to create sustainable economies, offering disaster relief to countries in need, and working to put an end to injustice everywhere. In addition to fighting global poverty, AJWS does work fighting global injustices such as genocide, and providing disaster relief such as in the case of Haiti.
I am starting by donating $18. to my fundraising campaign. In encourage you to join me by making a donation of $18 or another amount that is meaningful to you to AJWS through the link on this page.
