On 16 May 2011 the 5th corporate team from Novartis attended the community of “22 de Enero” in La Matanza, Buenos Aires Province, as a part of their annual day in the community. The group assisted the family of Maria Lourdes Pintos and Gustavo Moreno to begin to construct a bathroom, financed through an interest-free loan from funds of the HPHA rotating-fund, and also assisted the family of Daniel and Rosa Caro-Fretes to paint their new seed home. Nicole, responsible for HPHA Local Donors, commented that; “it was a great day! I went home painted from head to toe with splashes of salmon colour, but happy we were able to help Daniel and his family paint their new home.” Additional corporate teams from Daimler and Pago Facil Buenos Aires attended the community on 8, 9 and 11 June 2011 to further the construction of seed homes and housing improvements in the region.
