We decided to document the life and work of Sergio Castro, because when we met him in Chiapas, he deeply inspired us.

In Spanish, El Andalón signifies a person who moves nonstop, or creates his own path.

This is exactly how Sergio Castro has lived: His dedication to serving the indigenous communities for almost 50 years, and his work educating and promoting traditional Mayan culture through his ethnographic museum, are remarkable examples of the extraordinary impact one person can make.

If you are interested in making a contribution, please note that your donation will go directly to Sergio Castro's humanitarian work in Chiapas.

Thank you!

Don Sergio Castro has served the poor in Chiapas, Mexico for almost 50 years. El Andalon follows the steps of this maverick humanitarian who treats patients seven days a week for free, while building schools and water projects in indigenous communities. Donations by tourists at his own ethnographic museum, which houses an important collection of Mayan clothing, have funded his humanitarian work. But times are more trying than ever, and Don Sergio operates on the edge of an economic precipice. Can he continue to serve the people who depend on his good work?
