PEACE Mexico Seeks Vehicle Donation
A few weeks ago while coming home from a mobile clinic in Jalococtlan, near San Blas, the PEACE Animal Clinic truck was hit by a drunk driver. Fortunately there were no injuries in the accident but the PEACE truck was totaled.
This is a devastating loss for the animal team and the animals. The team is already feeling the effects of not having the truck, as they are not able to work as effectively to help transport animals.
The PEACE mobile clinic is unique in that it is able to serve very isolated and remote areas that would not be reached otherwise. Many people living in these rural areas do not have access to transportation, which makes it very difficult to get proper care for their animals.
The educational component of the program is also an important one as the animal clinic not only teaches community members but also goes into schools to educate children about the importance of spay and neutering and proper care of their animals.
PEACE is currently working through insurance issues but will need a new truck for the animal team. In addition to the recent accident with the animal truck, the recycling program is also looking for vehicle donation. The recycling team uses the truck throughout Mita down to Bucerias, every day except Sundays.
Their route covers 100km and hauls over 60 tons of recycling each year. The recycling team also performs other important functions for PEACE including hauling supplies for the Work for Food Program and transporting children to and from school events.
PEACE is looking for donations of two six or eight cylinder trucks for these programs. The preference is to find local donations but PEACE would also consider bringing a vehicle down from the United States or Canada. These donations are tax-deductible in the United States and Mexico.
