Covid supplies reach more than 230 rural Mexican communities

Mexico City, Mexico — Families in more than 230 rural communities in Chiapas, Oaxaca, Yucatán and Sinaloa will receive face masks to help with the covid battle. The masks are being donated and transported by Aeroméxico, P&G México and the non-profit association Un Kilo de Ayuda.

The airline reported that thanks to this alliance, Aeroméxico Cargo transported 815,500 free masks that will be useful for more than 17,000 families. The delivery of the masks, they add, was possible thanks to the donation by P&G and the outreach to the communities by Un Kilo de Ayuda.

“At P&G, since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, we set out to be part of the solution and after a year, we continue to join forces to support our communities.

“For this reason, this time we joined with two great allies, Aeroméxico and Un Kilo de Ayuda to contribute to the protection of Mexican families with the donation of face masks and thus, achieve a greater impact on society,” said Blanca Espinosa, the senior director of Communications and Brand Operations at P&G México.

During the pandemic, the airline reported that it has carried out more than 350 cargo charter flights of which 235 were to transport medical supplies to 18 states around the country. The flights have also included the transport of technicians for covid vaccination stations.

The work, they said, is in collaboration with the Government of Mexico under the coordination of the Ministry of Foreign Relations.
