Regardless of the idea we have of Mexico as a warm country, 49% of the national territory has a desertic climate, which means that at wintertime –especially at night– it can get pretty cold, dry because it doesn’t snow, but the temperature goes below 0°C.
During the latest winter, at least 62 people died because of the low temperatures in our region. Mexico has 25% of its inhabitants living in extremely poor conditions (about 26 millions of people).
This means they live in huts made of cardboard, plastic or tin. No electricity, no water or sewer. But the worst of all, is the poor nutritional conditions in which these people live, the majority of them being children.
