By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 16 October, 2010

(Acapulco, JG) The State of Guerrero will receive $71 million pesos from the National Natural Disasters Fund (Fonden) and from the Solidarity Fund (Fonsol), which finance reconstruction following natural disasters. Seven counties will receive the aid, as they were devastated by tropical storms and heavy rains in August and September. The state’s undersecretary for civil protection, Nubia Sáyago González, announced the recipients, some of which are close to Acapulco: Marquelia, Benito Juárez, Atoyac and Chilpanzingo. Also Malinaltepec, Iliatenco and Metlatónoc will be recipients. She indicated that these special funds are “tools for relief and support” and are made available “only when the municipalities in question have been so adversely affected by an external event that they are unable to respond to the crisis on their own.”
