Summary

San Jose is a home for elderly people who have found themselves lonely and lacking the necessary care for everyday life. Unfortunately, we are facing an emergency: urgent repairs and installations must be completed, and we do not have the necessary funds. Most of the residents, who are over 90% women, have no other family. This place is and has been their home for over 10, 15, or even 20 years, and we cannot look away.

Challenge

On top of the 50 residents, the Home has a professional team of doctors, psychologists, social workers, and nutritionists who work 24 hours a day to provide care for participants. Without San Jose, not only will the residents lose their homes, but they will also be unemployed. In Argentina, 4 in 10 people are classed as 'poor', mainly children, women, or the elderly. Seniors are left entirely vulnerable when deprived of retirement, pensions, or health insurance rights.

Solution

The home not only responds to the physiological needs of the participants but also promotes the subjects' emotional well-being and mental health through different recreational workshops and medical follow-ups, among other services. With the funds raised from this project, we will ensure the home is in optimal condition to keep working as effectively as it has for many decades. We will prevent the closure of San Jose Home.

Long-Term Impact

San Jose Home is a place that has honoured the tradition of respecting and caring for older adults for more than 80 years. Not only are we saving people's homes, but also people's history. Mensajeros de la Paz is committed to guarding their dignity and protecting them from any risk that directly affects them. To effectively do so, repairing San Jose Home is our top priority.
