The government of Spain, along with the foundations of Carlos Slim and Bill Gates (two of the richest men in the world), are coming together to donate $50 million dollars each for a Meso-American Health Initiative. The 2015 Meso-American Health Initiative, which was launched in a ceremony at the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City by Mexican president Felipe Calderon, is said to benefit at least 10 million people in mostly Southern Mexico and Central America. The nutrition and health programs will especially benefit mothers and children who live in poverty and with hunger every day. The money and resources for the $150 million Initiative will be channeled through the Inter-American Development Bank. Bill Gates and Carlos Slim are self-made billionaires, and are well-known philanthropists.
