We are collectiong for “Senior Center Copetonas” in Tres Arroyos, Buenos Aires Province. The majority of the people in the village ”Copetonas” is of Dutch and Danish descendant.
The Senior Center is currently a day care facility for 16 persons (men and women) over 65 years and encourages elderly to stay in their community. It’s meant for people with little family support and limited financial resources, receiving a retirement pension of 2,757 pesos (280 euros) per month and who live in a village of 1200 inhabitants.
The requested amount of EUR 5.000, will be used to extend the gallery of the Center. This space is of common usage, where people can sit outside to sunbathe, important for their bone problems, and for entertainment. The space can be used to organize activities such as gymnastics, knitting and handicrafts. It can also be used as a dining space on warm days, because it overlooks a part of the garden. The renovation will help the Center turn into a complete accommodation.
The Foundation and the donation about this project came in the local news.
