Date published: February 02, 2011

CEMEX, through its award-winning Lazos Familiares (Family Bonds) social responsibility program, has donated the first phase of a breast cancer detection and treatment center in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The center will be operated by Grupo de Recuperacion Total Reto Oaxaca (Total Recovery Challenge Group Oaxaca) and will benefit over 400 people every month.

The center includes various multiple-use areas, a waiting room, cubicles for doctor's appointments, an oncology area, mammography, ultrasound, psychology, rehabilitation, restrooms, and outdoor areas.

"CEMEX actively contributes to the development of our country, providing innovative building solutions that improve the quality of life of families," said Mayra Inguanzo, Manager of the Lazos Familiares program at the donation ceremony.

As part of Lazos Familiares, CEMEX, its clients, suppliers and employees donate building materials and manual labor necessary for the construction or improvement of community infrastructure in the areas of health, education, housing and urban renewal, and other social improvement projects. Since 2005, the program has built or rehabilitated 42 structures in 32 states in Mexico, benefiting over 33,000 people. Key to these projects has been the participation of 648 CEMEX customers and suppliers.
