je suis Christiane Eckert de Maya Solidarité et grâce à l'aide de Héritance et surtout de Jean Bermon qui est venu sur place à San Cristobal au Mexique où il a analysé la situation du musée de costumes traditionnels du Chiapas de Sergio Castro et proposé un plan de rénovation et sauvegarde de ces costumes nous avons une base de travail pour en faire un musée ouvert de manière régulière et de bonnes conditions de visite .Cela nous permettra aussi de rentrer un peu d'argent qui permettra à Sergio de monter et faire fonctionner le dispensaire qui accueillera les patients ayant des brulures souvent très graves ,dispensaire qui entrain de se mettre en place actuellement.En principe j' ai trouvé maintenant un menuisier capable de mener à bien la fabrication des vitrines et donc on va pouvoir faire avancer le dossier Amitiés à tous Christiane

My name is Christiane Eckert ,I am french and come from Strasbourg Alsace. I am an volunteer en San Cristobal where I works in a home who look after children and I know the museum from Sergio Castro since many years because I am in a french association called "Maya solidarite " who help Sergio Castro in these works for the indigenes: I think that the project for the museum ,is a superb project because it does not exist another museum of this type in all the Mexique and it is important that the most people possible can known that civilisation with its traditions and its customs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

my meeting with Jean Bermon was very fine and his help for the project very constructive
