Mazatlan, Sinaloa .- Around 40 thousand condoms will be distributed during the first parade of allegorical cars, on the fourth day of the maximum celebration of the port, the International Carnival of Mazatlan.
The director of Compartiendo Retos, Daysi Balam, commented that the activity is supported by the current municipal administration, by opening the distribution of condoms.
Fortunately, this year it seems that the municipality has another way of working, by giving more openness, so it gave us space in the advance of the float parade.

He clarified that the purpose of Compartiendo Retos is not to be inside the floats, because the only thing they will focus on is the delivery of at least one condom per person.
The activist, he said, the preventive material was provided by the Ministry of Health, although they did not have time to request support from other organizations because of the decrease in resources that has occurred.

He said that the civil association that presides focused on this massive event, because they will reach the largest number of people who can receive condoms.
