In times of pandemic and despair , we only get out with collective work and solidarity. We Argentines also know about that. Although we are sometimes called as enlarged or individualists. At this opportunity, the feat is from two professionals, who decided to work fighting the virus . A professor graduated from the University College of Journalism of Cordoba, Ricardo Barrio. And Diego Villa , a degree in Social Communication. This project is a solidarity work that combines skills from different disciplines to deal with the pandemic.
Ricardo is a professor of Fundamentals of Programming and serves as director of the IES 3D Impressions Race in Córdoba. That is why he was summoned for this venture. Their knowledge is key to the development of protective masks . Diego was the visionary and who has the machines to carry out this great job. Solidarity is the secret ingredient that unites them in this community work.
Diego began his 3D printing work in 2019. His knowledge, for the time being, was scarce. He went to Ricardo's advice, friend and colleague, to blogs, pages, and trained. As a self-taught, she fulfilled her task. Today, it is one of the benchmarks of Cordoba with regard to these modalities of work.
The initiative arose by the national call of the Argentine Chamber of 3D Printing to print security masks. Diego signed up without hesitation, and summoned Ricardo to join the project. The first production was destined to the Palliative Care Center directed by Dr. Hernán Carranza. Diego and Ricardo say that it is a huge satisfaction to be able to help without leaving home.
They already produced a lot of prevention and safety material for different institutions . And they continue to bring their knowledge, time and money into this aid.
It's just that solidarity is what will save us.
