I was lucky enough to grow up in a house of good means, but in a town surrounded of people in a lot of need. Ever since I was baby, I saw my parents’ drive to help with innumerable causes and organizations, always juggling their time between work and volunteering at different places. A few years ago, they started helping at Hospice Buen Samaritano in my hometown of Pilar. This is a home for people with terminal illness like cancer, who don’t have the resources to afford treatment or care at a hospital, where they can rest and get some relief from all the pain that these conditions put them through, with the help of volunteers and nurses.
In the wake of a possible medical collapse in my home country, due to the threat of the COVID-19 outbreak, they are in desperate need for medical supplies to stay afloat and keep the patients they have in treatment.
I have started this campaign because I believe with a little help from everyone, we can do a lot for this place to keep working in these very difficult times for the health system, specially in the precarious situation that Argentina is in.
Thank you very much, Jimmy.
