Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Working so the last days of a terminal patient are full of life

2014-12-07

A terminal diagnosis is a devastating moment in the life of both the patient and their family. The Hospice "Buen Samaritano” is an organization that gives assistance to patients with scarce resources and helps them through their last journey.

The center is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and opened its doors to its first patient five years ago. They insist that, more than a clinic, the hospice is a home.

DR. MATIAS NAJUN
President, Hospice Buen Samaritano
"This is all about the encounter between two people. Placing ourselves at their level, looking at them directly, listening to them. We help them feel like real people.”

Beyond medical assistance, the hospice offers human warmth and company during their most difficult moments. Their mission is to make sure the patient's last days are full of life.

DR. MATIAS NAJUN
President, Hospice Buen Samaritano
"The right sedative is not enough. We must embrace them as a whole. We must embrace the person and their situation in order to help them. For total pain, you need the total care the hospice offers.”

The center counts with over 100 volunteers. These include nurses, palliative doctors, psychologists, as well as social and religious workers. Everything to assist the patients and their families.

CRISTIAN QUIROGA
Family member, Hospice Buen Samaritano
"Finding people here that are willing to give so much love... It's hard to express it with words.”

Their humanitarian work has gained them several  awards, including the "Abanderados de la Argentina Solidaria” 2014 Award.
