Please help people in Tabasco

Nuestros amigos Lorena y Gunnar nos escriben desde Suecia para recordarnos que tenemos un deber de solidaridad con Tabasco, donde un millón de personas —la mitad de la población del estado— es afectada ahora mismo por las peores inundaciones sufridas en 50 años en aquella parte de México. Las primeras consecuencias del desastre podrían ser: 1) la escasez de agua y víveres en un territorio muy amplio; y 2) debido a ello, el desencadenamiento de epidemias.

Lo que sigue es el llamado de auxilio escrito por Gunnar en inglés; y después, mi traducción. Las fotografías se las envió a Lorena un amigo de Tabasco.

Gracias a todos por su solidaridad.

Friends and readers:

I have never asked you about anything, but now I do.

Please help the people of Tabasco, Mexico.

If you can, give something, anything is fine, to the Red Cross (choose: "International Response Fund"; or, if you speak Spanish: Cruz Roja), so they can redistribute it to the people that need it.

An estimate of over 600 000 people have lost their homes as I write this, and around 80% percent of the state's surface is now covered by water.

And yes, to answer your question: the levee was never finished. They started working on it many years ago, but... mysterically "forgot" to make it ready.

Thank you for your help.

Amigos y lectores:

Nunca les he pedido nada, pero hoy sí lo haré.

Por favor, ayuden a la gente de Tabasco, México.

El que pueda, dé algo, cualquier cosa está bien, a la Red Cross (una vez en la página, los angloparlantes escojan "International Response Fund"; quienes hablen español, vayan al sitio de la Cruz Roja). Con nuestro apoyo, esta asociación beneficia a la gente que lo necesita.

Más de 600 000 personas han perdido sus hogares al momento en que escribo, y alrededor del 80% de la superficie del estado está cubierta por el agua.

Y sí, para responder a su pregunta: el dique nunca fue terminado. Empezaron a trabajar en él hace muchos años, pero... misteriosamente "olvidaron" concluirlo.

Gracias por su atención.
