Province of Cruz del Sur accompanies families affected by COVID-19

Faced with the situation caused by the COVID-19, the Marist Community Education Centres (CECs) of the Province of Cruz del Sur (Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay) are promoting works of care and co-responsibility in the different localities where they are present, with the firm and steadfast determination to work for the common good, where everyone is responsible for everyone else.

A vital and urgent task at this time is assistance with food and the distribution of basic hygiene products. The Centres are providing bags of goods, food, and working with state agencies to strengthen the aid network in the neighbourhoods.

With the measures of social isolation, the CECs are in permanent communication with the children, adolescents and their families, through their physical presence in the territory, and now also in a virtual way, through the different platforms, where they bring together recreational proposals, educational support, reflections and information on services and prevention, which seek to sustain the links in a creative, close and warm way.

The Marist Community Education Centres of the Province also continue to accompany closely those minors who are going through situations where their rights have been violated. Through social networks, each educational centre proposes different initiatives to be closer to those who need it most, with the commitment to be vital communities, and even more so, in times of pandemic.
