Montevideo, Uruguay -- Social action in Quebracho

The area of Quebracho has 2500 inhabitants, whose livelihood comes from the cultivation of grain, vegetable farming and stock-raising. At the request of the mayor, 24 students went there from Montevideo, during the month of January, to paint various public buildings in the town and also the homes of some elderly people without financial means, as well as two parish halls. The students also gave classes and organized activities for some 60 children in the poorest section of the district.
