In recent years, with the economies of southern Mexico hard hit by COVID-19 and violent tropical storms, WKKF has joined other institutions to support community-led efforts to revitalize economic life and position it to rebound after a disaster.  

In close collaboration with communities, we developed local disaster mitigation and preparedness funds.

In spring 2022, the Museo Casa Montejo in Mérida, Yucatán, hosted an exhibit titled, “Community-led economic recovery,” with photos by Aurora Fernandez depicting participants in one of these initiatives. It is part of a project implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to reduce the economic impact of COVID-19 and promote resilient early recovery in communities in Mexico, with support from Zurich Foundation, Fomento Social Citibanamex and WKKF.
