COVID-19 Impact and Response

San Lucas, Santa Apolonia

Community Life: 

  • San Lucas is located three miles from the municipal seat of Santa Apolonia and has a population of 60 families.
  • The primary productive activity in the village is agriculture. Corn and beans are the main crops, but they also grow potatoes, sweet peas, carrots, cauliflower and cabbage.
  • There is public transportation every day to Santa Apolonia.
  • When people need medical attention, they have to travel to the health center in Santa Apolonia.
  • There is not a school in the community, so children walk three miles both ways every day to the nearest one.
  • 50 percent of the population is Catholic and 50 percent is evangelical.
  • Even if accessible during the whole year, almost 100 percent of their roads are unpaved.
