The NGO Remar Argentina and the Municipality of Las Heras, province of Mendoza, Argentina, have reached an agreement to work together in the construction of a containment center for people in vulnerable situations.
The presentation of this project for the benefit of people at risk of social exclusion took place in the Intendencia de Las Heras Municipal Hall. A commitment has been reached for the construction of a center to be located on Cabildo Abierto and Marconi streets in El Algarrobal, on 650 square meters of land, donated by Las Heras to the NGO.
The mayor of Las Heras, Daniel Orozco, and the REMAR coordinator for Argentina and neighboring countries, Juan José Estévez, attended the event.
The project will be carried out by professionals from the Municipality’s Department of Public Works and Services, and will consist of three floors totaling approximately 1,150 square meters. It will have a parsonage, two outside rooms, a garage for vehicles and storage, as well as modular cores with rest and recreation areas. The rooms located on the first and second floors will support the stay of approximately 56 people in need of containment and social reintegration.
Within this framework, Mayor Daniel Orozco highlighted: “This type of joint actions with organizations such as REMAR are a fundamental tool for the development of social policies, since they allow us to reach places where we must be with the community and in this opportunity -with this future undertaking- we seek to take care of the most vulnerable neighbors”.
Remar Argentina has been working in this country for more than 30 years, in favor of people in socioeconomic vulnerability, and helping thousands of alcoholics and people with addictions to get out of this situation, in addition to providing help to the community through food distributions, warm clothes and drinking water to families with lower incomes, and health care projects.
The good work done by Remar Argentina in these 30 years and the good fruit that has been obtained, make possible this type of agreements with entities, governments and Municipalities, for this reason we are very happy and grateful.
