The Organization of American States (OAS) and the David Lynch Foundation (FDL) of Latin America agreed today to work together to help diverse vulnerable groups in Latin America and the Caribbean and to seek more rights for more people.
The President of the David Lynch Foundation of Latin America, José Luis Álvarez, said that many people need help in the region and that “transcendental meditation can be a very helpful tool.” “Through this agreement we can help millions of people in Latin America and the Caribbean. In the areas of migration, health, agriculture, drug addiction and all areas where human and democratic rights can be improved, we will do our best to help people,” Álvarez added.
For his part, the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, said the agreement will allow for the joining of efforts to reach thousands of people in a more efficient and practical way who, due to their vulnerability, need direct support. “Any action aimed at generating well-being in the region, at this time and for the post-pandemic, is more than welcome,” said the head of the OAS.
The FDL has two decades of experience in 21 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially in Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Brazil and Chile, in which it has trained one million people.
