Mexico

Despite corruption and bribe – the family remains in the focus

Violence and poverty and drug cartels – Mexico has been facing these problems for decades. More than half of the population is considered poor. It is true that the country is doing well in comparison to other countries in South America, but prosperity is distributed over a few wealthy ones. Many people in Mexico have to struggle for survival day after day.
