Getting ready for a tough winter in Buenos Aires

By Bruno Baldo | Project assistant

[EN]

It is autumn in Argentina, a time of the year that always keeps us very busy preparing containment actions for winter, the most difficult time of the year for homeless people.

Certainly, this year the situation does not look good at all: we are currently going through a severe economic crisis affecting the population in general, but more specifically the people we support. On one hand, the state agencies are reducing their teams and therefore have less capacity to address social demands; on the other hand, the cost of living has skyrocketed, especially due to the increase in the prices of food, medicines and basic services.

That is why at Multipolar we are doubling our efforts to provide more effective and far-reaching support: throughout last year, our teams accompanied 67 people in situations of social vulnerability on their path to re-employment; so far this year, we have already accompanied 40, so we are optimistic about the growth of our outreach. This is thanks to the increasingly stronger articulations with other organizations and to the good results, which improve the predisposition of other people to participate in the processes we offer.

In response to the most urgent needs, we are also developing food donation campaigns to ensure that the people we accompany have food on their plates every day, which is essential to be able to start any training or work process.

We encourage you to join us with your support!

 

[ES] - Nos preparamos para un invierno duro en Buenos Aires

Estamos en otoño en la Argentina, una época del año que siempre nos tiene muy concentrados en preparar acciones de contención y acompañamiento para el invierno, el momento más difícil del año para las personas en situación de calle que deben enfrentar temperaturas extremas en las calles de la ciudad.

El panorama no es para nada alentador: atravesamos una grave crisis económica que está teniendo un fuerte impacto en la población en general, pero más específicamente en las personas que acompañamos: por un lado, los organismos estatales de contención están achicando sus equipos, y por ende tienen menor capacidad de absorber las demandas sociales; por otro lado, el costo de vida se ha disparado, especialmente por el aumento de los precios de alimentos, medicamentos y servicios básicos.

Por eso en Multipolar redoblamos nuestros esfuerzos para ofrecer acompañamientos más efectivos y con mayor alcance: a lo largo de todo el año pasado, nuestros equipos acompañaron a 67 personas en situación de vulnerabilidad social en sus caminos de revinculación laboral; en lo que va de este año, ya acompañamos a 40, por lo que somos optimistas respecto del crecimiento de nuestro alcance. Esto es gracias a las articulaciones cada vez más fuertes con otras organizaciones y a los buenos resultados, que mejoran la predisposición de otras personas a participar en los procesos que ofrecemos.

Atendiendo a lo más urgente, también estamos desarrollando campañas de donación de alimentos para garantizar que las personas que acompañamos tengan comida en sus platos cada día, algo indispensable para poder iniciar cualquier proceso de formación o trabajo.

Te invitamos a sumar tu granito de arena acompañándonos con tu apoyo!
