Hombre Nuevo is one of the projects

APARU is currently supporting. It is a

not-for profit organisation founded in

Cordoba, Argentina in 2002. It provides

care and assistance to homeless people,

focusing on their physical and psychological

rehabilitation, life-transformation and on

the recovery of their human dignity.


In December 2013, Carolina Garcia

Marengo, one of APARU's executive

committee members, visited the organisation

to learn more about their inspiring work

and how funds donated by APARU

are invested.


We hope you enjoy this video and help us

raise more funds for this fantastic project.
