Caring for and giving as much help as possible to the old people is one of the priorities that Argentines have in the face of the pandemic. With this premise, a group of people from the city of Santa Fe, who decided to be called Santafesina Initiative , has carried out, from March 15 and through social networks , the campaign called #UnaManoParaNuestrosViejos.
The mother idea is that Santafesinos who are not in the risk group can volunteer in their neighborhood, in order to help older adults in your building, block or block. Especially for those who are alone or without the possibility of receiving help from a family member, friend or acquaintance.
Social networks were essential for the initiative to take shape, appealing to the virtual mobilization of individuals to assist the old people they have nearby.
As it is not known with certainty how long obligator io isolation will last, it is necessary to understand that older people, regardless of neighborhoods and social classes, will continue to require attention and collaboration, with formalities, errands, entertainment and even emotional restraint. Through its initiative, the driving group hopes to help as many men and women as possible over 60 years of age who are in some form of loneliness or are not reached by State attention.
The organization seeks to ensure that there is a relationship of trust between the adult and the volunteer. They comply with all the existing regulations established in the framework of the quarantine mandated by the National Government and follow the health recommendations for protection and distancing. Volunteers thus contact seniors in their own neighborhood and offer to help them in the process they need (pharmacy, super, payment of taxes). Then they go, do the procedure, pay what they have to pay and, when taking the merchandise or the result of the procedure to the elderly, they charge what they spend.
Finally, the volunteer shares what was done within the framework of his initiative on social networks, with the hashtag #UnaManoParaNuestrosViejos, so he can reach the most potentials needed.
