Despite the pandemic, Sumando Manos Foundation continues to work in solidarity within the areas of critical need in Argentina.
 

The Local Communities in Salta, Chaco and Misiones are facing many challenges of all kinds, but the most important one is access to clean and safe drinking water. There is hardly any rainfall, which brings about a drought, so the families depend on the water provided by the municipality.

With your help! Sumando Manos Foundation will purchase, deliverer and install thirteen (13) 1000 liter tanks in 13 schools we regularly sponsor. With this action, we will help at least 600 students. The schools to sponsored in this campaign are as follows: es:

 
  1. EX.EGB N°55-Anexo De La E.E.P N°157, Chaco, Paraje Rincon Del Zorro, La Leonesa
  2. EEP 297, Chaco, Lote 39 Colonia El Aborigen El Aguara Machagai
  3. EEP 862, Chaco, Lote 39 Colonia Aborigen, Zona Legisa Machagai
  4. EEP 395, Chaco, Paraje Pampa Ombu Machagai
  5. EEP 961 Sarapi Francisco Soria,  Chaco, Pje. Central Norte, Miraflores
  6. EEP 932, Chaco, Pje. Pozo El Algarrobo/Pje Las Margaritas, Miraflores
  7. EEP 916 Juan Jose Castelli,  Chaco, Paraje El Gramillar, Pampa Del Indio
  8. Anexo EEP 916 Tomas Acevedo, Chaco, Paraje La Gloria, Pampa Del Indio
  9. EEP 201 Soldado Victor Ofelio Ávalos, Chaco, Ruta Provincial N 4 Lote 8, Samuhu
  10. EEP 371 “Ernesto Ocampo”, Chaco, Pje. El Baño, Villa Berthet
  11. EEP 718 “Ex Combatientes De Malvinas”, Chaco, Lote 18, Villa Berthet
  12. Unidad Ed. Albergue Batalla De Salta N° 4130, Salta, Rosario De La Frontera, Paraje Sta. Maria
  13. ESC. 373/01 Guillermo Donaire, Misiones, Pje. El Boton, El Soberbio
 
From now on, when it rains, the tanks can be used to collect rain water and save it for future use and, in the event of a drought, the municipality can fill up the tanks and the families will avoid having to travel long distances for water.

For this reason, we are starting this campaign to raise US$ 5,200 to buy, transport, and install the tanks which will benefit more than 600 children.

We need your help to provide a solution to this sad reality.

  • INTEGRAL FARM PROJECT “DON JOSE CORIA” AT SCHOOL # 371 "ERNESTO OCAMPO", VILLA BERTHET. Director: Marcelo Petrak

Construction for the integral farm has begun;  this farm will help generate the necessary elements for the school kitchen and dining hall. Any leftovers will be sold among parents, neighbors and the local market in order for the school to achieve economic independence. The goal is to raise hens and chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, dairy cows and the production of compost. We anticipate the inauguration of the farm to happen during the month of August.

FANDA PROJECT FOR DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING: We delivered 180 batteries for children with hearing loss at the FANDA Foundation, serving children in low income families.

As always, thank you very much for the constant support because without it we would not be able to carry out any of the projects we are currently working on.

Despite the pandemic, Sumando Manos continues working towards the goal of helping the neediest children in Argentina. That is why we continue to provide breakfast and non-perishable food items without interruption to the following schools and communities: 

  • Intercultural Bilingue School Nº 905 in Paraje Picada Guarani, El Soberbio, Misiones immersed in the Mbya Guaraní Community         
  • Aldea Ygua Porá Satellite Classroom 
  • Aldea Caramelito Satellite Classroom
  • Aldea Chafariz Kindergarten Satellite Classroom
  • Ofelia Lisa de Trejo” Center - Ushuaia
  • Food delivery was intensified and a special food delivery was made for Mother's Day.
  • More than 50 students enrolled to take online courses, not only from the town of Ushuaia but also from the town of Tolhuin. Most of the chosen courses were: - Basic English - ABC of social networks, Coaching, Entrepreneurs-- how to start in the virtual market - 
  • Water Project for "Los Blancos"
  • The Wichi and “Criollo” communities of Salta suffer from constant water shortages due to droughts, further aggravated by the pandemic. 200 families with approximately 1000 children had to travel up to 48 kilometers by bicycle or motorcycle regularly to fill cans and other containers with water provided by the city government.
  • Sumando Manos carried out a campaign to buy 200 tanks (1 per family) of 600 liters capacity to collect rainwater when it rains, and store water when the city government provides it.
  • After two months of intense work, the 200 water tanks were delivered in the town of Los Blancos, Salta, allowing these families to have water during the drought without having to travel to the supply centers to collect it.

We want to thank everyone who joins hands to help us during these challenging times; we ask that you continue to trust in our work and accompany us. Such actions touch our hearts in a very special way.

Thank you, always thank you!!

As we've communicated in our last report, Sumando Manos carried out the purchase, delivery and installation of 200 drinking water tanks because of the great risk that 200 families with about 1000 children are facing due to being isolated without water during the intense drought that devastates the region of Gran Chaco.

After 2 months of tireless and uninterrupted work, plus an amazing fundraising campaign, the purchase, delivery and installation of the water tanks has been successfully completed. 

Now, these 200 families can accumulate and consume clean drinking water for several months, even when a drough hits like it does every year. This will have an immediate impact on the health of these 1000 children that, up to now, were mostly drinking contaminated water.

It is the commitment of Sumando Manos to continue monitoring the situation of the families, support the local organizations and continue through new projects emphasaising on gender and interculturality, in order to achieve the greatest impact on the life of these rural communities.

We'd like to thank all those who have contributed to this amazing campaign and let them know Sumando Manos Foundation will continue advocating for the underpriviledged children of Argentina.

Sincerely,

Sumando Manos Foundation
