“Back to School” campaign of IHSA to support the families of Tamaulipas
23 de Agosto de 2017
As every year, Iberoamericana de Hidrocarburos (IHSA) activated its “Back to School” campaign in order to support low-income families in the rural areas of San Fernando Tamaulipas, municipality where our operations area is located.
Thus, IHSA staff led by the Department of Community Support Works, and in coordination with municipal authorities, on August 22 and 23 were given the task of visiting 12 schools to distribute to first-year students packages of school supplies benefiting 300 boys and girls who were very happy and motivated with their new tools.
To carry out this work, the coordination of IHSA Community Support Works together with the municipal presidency developed a socio-economic study throughout the municipality to determine the areas most in need of receiving this type of support, selecting well to these 12 schools of elementary and preschool. The selected schools are located in the ejidos where there is a greater concentration of low-income families, for which this support is of the utmost importance.
The “Back to School” campaign is part of the “Committed to San Fernando” Program through which IHSA has sought the welfare of the community through social activities and works that have a positive impact especially among the population of San Fernando most in need economically.
