Building and Equipping the Bodega de Salud (Warehouse of Health)

Help us build and equip the Bodega de Salud / Warehouse of Health! Fight Covid-19 and support resistance, resilience, and the strengthening of health autonomy in Zapatista territories! 

Your Gift of Change supports three major functions of the Bodega de Salud:

  1. To supply basic laboratory equipment for the production of herbal medicinal tinctures, balms, and syrups throughout the autonomous territories. These laboratories—alongside educational workshops, seeds, plants and medicinal herbs—are centers to support life in Mayan communities.
  2. To share educational materials on day-to-day sanitation protocols, and preventive and palliative measures in the control of Covid-19. This includes preparation, handling, and storage for medicine-making.
  3. To produce and stockpile highly effective Zapatista-style masks to protect against the spread of Covid-19.

Though the “controversy” about Covid 19 continues, Zapatista communities were among the first to adopt strict protocols of mask-wearing, social distancing, and quarantine. They have hosted many vaccination clinics, and protected their families. And even more importantly, throughout the long course of the pandemic, they are fortifying traditional healing practices, reviving plant medicine knowledge in their ecosystems, and refocusing on health autonomy. The Bodega de Salud exists to strengthen these efforts and build capacity according to the desires of the communities!

Support health autonomy through the Bodega de Salud today! Thank you for your Gift of Change!
