Junín de los Andes (Argentina) Mary Help of Christians Community of Junín de los Andes, of the Argentina – Bahia Blanca Province of St. Francis Xavier (ABB), normally networks with the Area  of the Municipality that deals with minors and families, especially for the cases that concern women who for various reasons need to be hosted in the FMA’s ‘Laura Vicuña’ hostel.

In this Coronavirus situation, having learned from the Emergency Committee of the Municipality about  the lack of personnel to cook meals for some families in difficulty, for the elderly, and for people with violent family situations, the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians decided to respond to the Municipality’s request and make themselves available for this service.

Recalling the attitude of Mary who in the face of her cousin’s need does not hesitate to go out and help her, but unable to go out because the quarantine requires ‘staying at home’, the FMA thought of the initiative of ‘leaving the house, without leaving‘,  by sharing a plate of food.

With the help of three guests, the possibility of a large kitchen, and the provision of vegetables from Mary Help of Christians School of the Community of Neuquén, the FMA cook 50 portions of food every day that the workers of the Municipality come to collect and then deliver to people in need.
