Photos: Medicinal Plants

Last week our team in Mexico hosted Abuela Sofia (a tzotzil indigenous medicine woman) for a 3-day Universal Design workshop on medicinal plants. Over 35 members of the community came to share, learn about and identify plants in the jungle around them, as well as their different uses in ailments. Danae Chazaro, TLF coordinator said:

“We found more than 30 medicinal species. It was also amazing to see how the community embraced disability inclusion as an important part of community health in just 3 days of working together.”

La semana pasada nuestro equipo en México recibió a la Abuela Sofía (médica tradicional tzotzil), para llevar a cabo un taller de plantas medicinales, diseñado universalmente. Alrededor de 35 personas de la comunidad asistieron para compartir, aprender e identificar las plantas en la selva alrededor de la comunidad, así como sus diferentes usos en remedios. Dánae Cházaro, Coordinadora de TLF, dice: “Encontramos más de 30 especies medicinales. Fue también increíble ver cómo la comunidad asumió la inclusión de las personas con discapacidad como parte de la salud de su comunidad, en sólo 3 días de trabajar todos juntos”.
