Argentina - Youth for Peace in aid of those affected by heavy rain and flood.

Strong winds and high rainfall have hit the Greater Buenos Aires in the last few days, causing massive damages to the houses and families living in the city’s poorest neighborhoods - in some of them there are the Schools of Peace of Sant’Egidio. The area of Gregorio de Laferrere was highly affected: many had to leave everything and look for a shelter in schools and parishes.

To tackle the difficult situation, the Youth for Peace of Buenos Aires started a collection of clothes, shoes, antiseptics and other basic necessities. After having ordered and prepared them, accordingly to the specific needs of each kid and family, they went through mud and water paths to distribute them among the still standing houses and shelters, offering everyone an act of fraternity in such a tough time.
