Get to know the history of Karem and its solidarity network of health professionals.

Stories of people

Sometimes, when you go on a path, in the course you lose the true goal. The vocation pushes us in a direction, and that's where we go, but we forget what it was that launched us at first. Karem Araoz is a clinical doctor who, fortunately, did not forget about the real goal of her profession: when she ends her shift in the private sanatorium of Belgrano (Buenos Aires City), where she works 12 hours a day, she attends free of charge to street people.
When she arrives at Plaza Barrancas, her patients are waiting for her. On Saturdays, it also attends in Plaza de Mayo. Everyone knows her, her and the rest of the volunteers from the civil association “Can you give me an hour?” , made up of health professionals who put their time at the service of those who have the least.
Each week, they care for more than 100 patients, who are clinically monitored and, as far as they can, give them the medication they need. For them, the key is to generate a bond with people: to transmit warmth, respect and human contact, to them who are often invisible to the rest of society.
