The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to improve the living conditions of the most disadvantaged individuals and families in Argentina through social inclusion.
Messengers of Peace Argentina (MoP) was founded in 2002 by Father Angel Garcia Rodriguez. Our organization was initially created to provide direct support to underprivileged people affected by the Argentinean crisis who were not being helped by existing relief agencies. Today its mandate and activities have evolved, while its focus on improving the daily lives of the most vulnerable people has been maintained.
The projects that we implement in Argentina, range from community centers, soup kitchens, dwelling homes and day care centers for children to residential and day care centers for elderly people.
MoP focuses regularly on poverty-fighting projects in Buenos Aires and Tucuman reaching thousands of people annually.
