Puerto Morelos DIF center will be rebuilt using donated sargassum bricks

Puerto Morelos, Q.R — Puerto Morelos mayor says the much-needed rebuilding of the System for Integral Development (DIF) facilities will include more offices and that construction will be done using donated sargassum bricks.

Municipal President Laura Fernández Piña said that in order to provide quality care to people in vulnerable situations, the psychology area of the Sistema Nacional para el Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF) will be rebuilt. The mayor commented that the rehabilitation of this space is necessary, which over time, has lost its useful life and became a risk for DIF staff and those who use the facility.

“Solidarity is a human value that helps us have a better society, because it is through it that large projects are built for the benefit of the population that needs it most,” said the Puerto Morelos mayor in reference to the donation from the company that will build the new facility’s walls.

The sargassum brick walls are being donated by local businessman Omar Vázquez Sánchez from Blue Green nursery. He said that the project has a very special peculiarity, since the walls will be built with sargassum blocks.

Fernández Piña reiterated that with this donation, authorities will be able to provide better service to the vulnerable families who need it.

Adriana Nava Gómez, president of DIF of Puerto Morelos said “the Municipal President has asked us not to lower our guard on the issue of care for the most vulnerable groups, so it is necessary to work in coordination with public and private organizations and society in general, as well as private initiative, to provide quality services.”

She says the rebuilding of the facilities will include two psychology offices for people who require psychological therapy. “Our vocation is to serve and we will continue doing it with enthusiasm, working as a team, generating synergies and motivating more people to join the issues of social assistance,” she said.
