With the end of the obligatory social distancing in Argentina, decreed on February 7, the group of Young Missionaries for Peace re-started their services.
The social distancing, imposed by law in 2020 in the country, caused the suspension of the volunteers and the missionary group activities, where they met every month to accomplish a task.
Respecting all the measures and protocols to avoid the transmission and contamination by the Coronavirus, the group responded to the request for support of the Animal Sanctuary “El Paraíso de los Animales” (The Paradise for Animals), in General Rodriguez, in the Western Greater Buenos Aires.
This property has been functioning for approximately 40 years. Their elderly owners, around 80 years old, lovingly and unconditionally have taken in more than 850 animals of different species, which all live together harmoniously.
During the whole day, the group dedicated itself to the task requested by the owners: cleaning up the space where the horses, bulls and cows live, and harmonizing the environment.
“We are infinitely grateful that “The Paradise for Animals” has opened its doors to us since the first missionary trip in August of 2018,” express the representatives of the group of young people.
