Date: September 2021
Location: Neighborhood “9 de Noviembre”, Bahía Blanca, Province of Buenos Aires.
Issue:On this occasion, it was not a family that was selected, but an entire community. In 2013, in response to the need to end overcrowding, Sister Constanza Roldán built 40 6×4 houses. Given the vulnerability of the neighborhood, the need arose to create a 310 m2 social center. Then, in 2020, due to the number of people, the Vincentian Solidarity Center was created. This is a space where different workshops, trade and school support, and neighbors come to develop their skills. The center has no potable water and receives 500 people per day.
Solution: Build three water filters (Octopus Filter, Stop Master, and Pura Gigalight) to supply the 212 students attending classes and 60 volunteers. This model has the advantages of ensuring access to water for human consumption. It is a work that takes a week of hard work. This construction was made possible thanks to the companies Pura and Banco Galicia.
Current situation:Construction was completed on September 18, 2021, providing safe water to a community that seeks to grow every day.
We believe that this action is the beginning of a better quality of life.
We will visit them to tell us about the transformation that having access to water just a few meters from their home has given them.
