‘Casa de Los Abuelos ‘
Concordia, Entre Ríos Province
A home for the elderly called “La Casa de los Abuelos” (The Grandparents House) was born out of the need to provide shelter for elderly people who were homeless or living in extreme poverty, without any welfare coverage or relatives to take care of them.
The home opened on 18 July of 1992 and was at first based in a rented property, until the efforts of the local community resulted in the purchase of their own building.
The project aimed to repair the roof, which was in an extremely bad condition, at a total cost of € 1,823. The project was completed in late May 2003.
