The Health Promoter Program is now at the front lines of the growing Covid-19 threat. As you read this, Health Promoters are receiving special training, protective equipment, and medicine. They are beginning to use a mass-texting application to communicate quickly with each other to monitor the spread of the virus in their communities. They will also use this system to receive updated treatment protocols. And while, as of March 29th, Covid-19 has not arrived in San Lucas, they will be ready when it does.

We knew we could count on you to come through for San Lucas at a crucial time! Because of you, we exceeded our $30,000 stretch goal for the #SanLucasStrong campaign and nearly reached $40,000. We are astounded by your generosity. Thank you.
After extensive consultation and discussion with Mission leaders in San Lucas and US medical and public health professionals, Friends of San Lucas has decided to suspend all non-essential travel to the Mission, effective immediately. Medical and surgical groups will be examined on a case-by-case basis and will be informed as to whether they should continue with their plans to travel to San Lucas.
Parents, teachers, students: We have a special challenge for you! If you're connected to a classroom, we invite your students to get creative and design a message of love that can be sent electronically to the children in San Lucas. Create a digital art project, film students doing random acts of kindness, or scan hand-drawn friendship cards.

San Lucas was once a small village of cornstalk homes with thatched roofs, lacking both electricity and plumbing. There were neither health care facilities nor schools and women and children suffered severely from the lack of healthcare, with many women dying in childbirth and children suffering from malnutrition. But 1963 proved a historic year for the people of San Lucas.
