Cancun, Q.R. — City council of Benito Juárez says that a program to deliver food baskets to those in need around the city of Cancun is in progress. General secretary Jorge Aguilar Osorio said that the city, along with the state government, are working on putting together 250,000 food baskets that will be delivered to homes in need.
He explained that rather than have a pick-up center, when ready, the baskets will be distributed house-by-house by brigades throughout the city. He added that due to the magnitude of the project, they do not have a definite delivery date for the provisions, but that the Ayuntamiento de Benito Juárez is working on getting them out as soon as possible.
“We know that the most worrying thing is the people who live day-to-day and we must figure out how to help them since they are already feeling the pressure,” he explained. “The truth is, that it is our biggest concern, and we are working on it.”
The municipal official said that the current situation is more serious than Hurricane Wilma, since at least with a hurricane, there is a definitive end.
“We don’t have an exact date here. We are in Phase II, which is the most complicated,” he added.
