Solidarity fingerprint

On 30 April, an important meeting took place in the Municipality of Villa la Angostura, dedicated  to articulating different areas and institutional entities to undertake  gender policies  . These policies aim to  provide food assistance to women who are experiencing situations of  violence . 

For this reason, the  mayor, Fabio Stefani ; the  Secretary of Social Development, Isabella Ceola; the  President of the Neuquino Food Bank, Pablo Nogues; and  the provincial director of gender policies of the Undersecretary for Women in the province of Neuquén, Valeria Nogues.

It is noteworthy the organization of the  Angostorense municipality.  Since last year, Villa La Angostura has been implementing such policies, such as the training of municipal personnel on  gender-based violence  or the inauguration of the first women's shelter in the locality. 

Mayor Fabio Stefani said that, together with the Secretary of Social Development, work will continue to be done in this direction. The Provincial Director for Gender Policy of the Provincial Under-Secretariat for Women, Valeria Nogues, established that,  in the current context of  pandemic  and crisis, social and preventive isolation  have an unequal impact on society . And  he considered it essential to maintain a gender perspective as one of the priorities in all emergency agendas and actions .

Valeria Nogues's words are consistent with the statistics of the capital of the province.  The calls received by the Violence Office in the city of Neuquén have increased with confinement : before the quarantine, the average was 8.3 daily calls and is currently 11.2.

Do you want to help? You can do this: contact the  Neuquino Food Bank  and join the food collection,  aimed at alleviating the food crisis caused by the current situation .
