Argentina - Distribution of meals for Villa Itatí families

01 June 2020

Buenos Aires, Argentina - May 2020 - Villa Itatí (locality of Don Bosco, Buenos Aires) is a neighborhood where many very poor and vulnerable families live, with deficiencies of all kinds. After the first cases of COVID-19 in the neighborhood, the operation of opening drinking water taps was accelerated and an Emergency Health Committee was formed with the social and religious organizations in the neighborhood, including the Salesians, to help with various actions. For example, at the "Hermana María Luisa" youth center, run by Franciscan nuns, Salesians, and a large group of volunteers, meals are cooked and distributed daily; the so-called "people's pots" have multiplied, which arise from the generosity of families who help their neighbors with a hot meal. These initiatives have generated gestures and reflections of solidarity and charity with anonymous donations and companies, the support of local merchants with food and hygiene.
