The Barron Ejido president, Jorge Hilario Espinosa formed a committee of four Barron leaders to solicit local government (municipality of Mazatlan) support and funding for the project. The committee has raised $50,000 pesos in Barron for the project so far.
The Ejido of Barron has donated the land for the new clinic and has transferred title to the municipality of Mazatlan.
FOB CANAM INC has committed $400,000 pesos to the project. We have also offered to help equip it once built. We have raised $300,000 pesos to date.
The government has agreed to build and staff the clinic and has produced plans and budgets. They estimate a $1,600,000 peso construction project.
Elections were in July and a new municipal president will take power this month. So far his administration has verbally agreed to pursue the project. Obviously, this participation is key to success. We have been told that nothing will happen until the new administration takes control. We will routinely advise you of progress.
