The State System for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF) aims to promote the integration and development of individuals, families, and communities in Los Cabos. This objective is achieved through policies, strategies, and actions that prioritize preventing risk factors and providing essential support to families in need.
The Honorary President of SMDIF Los Cabos, Flora Aguilar de Leggs, supports family projects and events for the benefit of the community to continue offering a better service to the city of Los Cabos.
• The Attention and Prevention Program for Minors and Adolescents at Risk (PAMAR) is a comprehensive program that aims to support low-income minors who are at risk. The program provides a range of services, including workshops and talks that focus on educating these minors about their rights, good treatment, violence prevention, human trafficking, and child labor prevention. These workshops and talks are designed to be engaging and informative, and they are delivered by experienced professionals who are well-versed in the issues facing at-risk minors. The program is committed to providing a safe, supportive, and empowering environment for all participants so that they can develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed and thrive.
• Following the conclusion of the 10th Orsan Fishing Tournament, the Disability area of the Municipal System DIF Los Cabos received a symbolic check. The check included a donation of 20 wheelchairs that will benefit the population of Los Cabos.
• The Municipal DIF System is a nutrition team that assists the elderly individuals at the San Jose Day Care Center by conducting physical activities based on geriatric exercises. These exercises have been designed to help strengthen bones and muscles, improve the ability to perform daily activities, prevent falls, and, most importantly, increase the likelihood of leading an active and healthy life.
• The Coordination of Prevention and Attention to Minors and Adolescents at Risk (PAMAR) delivered groceries to mothers of families (with at-risk minors) integrated into the Cabo San Lucas registry.
• A glamorous and exciting fashion show named “La Choca” took place at the local community center. The event was organized to raise funds for Casa Hogar, a charitable organization that supports underprivileged children and youth in the local community. All the proceeds from the event will support Casa Hogar’s mission of providing better education, healthcare, and living conditions for the children and youth it serves.
• The “DIF en Tu Colonia” program is an initiative that provides free assistance to the population. Recently, over 100 families residing in the “El Rincon de La Playa” neighborhood in San José del Cabo were beneficiaries of this program. The assistance provided included various services, such as medical check-ups, counseling sessions, and educational workshops.
The program aims to improve the residents’ quality of life by addressing their basic needs and helping them overcome challenges. The unity of Los Cabos shines through in events like this, showing us that even small steps can lead to great goals. Let’s keep pushing forward together!
