A few days ago, a falling tree destroyed part of the building of the Hogar San José, in Ciudadela.

And now from the association Messengers of Peace launched a campaign to raise the $ 900,000 they need for the repair.
“Today it is very difficult for us to respond to such a great building need quickly since everyone our resources are intended for the care of the elderly, especially in this context of a pandemic. We know that this is also urgent and that is why we are asking for the support of the community ”, commented Hugo Cattoni, Director of the San José Home for the Elderly.
For this reason, from social networks they invite you to join the Campaign “Help for Saint Joseph”, with the objective of raising those $ 900,000 that will allow them to begin with the reconstruction in the coming weeks. For them it is of vital importance, since the damage caused by the tree affects the development of daily tasks.
They assure that “the repair must be carried out immediately, to guarantee that the Home becomes a refuge again. safe and warm for older people who need it, as it has historically been for the community. “
