In the past week, a great flood affected the city of Buenos Aires and mainly La Plata – capital of Buenos Aires province – where one of Hexacta’s development centers is located. 350,000 people were affected by the storm, 58 was the number of deaths and losses came to U$S 800 million.

Hexacta donated food, cleaning supplies and mattresses, among other elements, for those who were affected by the flood. At the same time, a campaign was organized among employees and the Corporate Social Responsibility team to gather donations for the victims. Everything was delivered on Friday afternoon by a team headed by Diego Vigliarolo, Managing partner of Hexacta, and Cristian López, Hexacta Architecture´s Team leader. The donations were delivered in two of the distribution centers in La Plata and then given to the victims: “La ciudad de los niños” (Children city) and Club Unión Vecinal de Villa Elvira (Neighborhood Union Club from V. Elvira).

Hexacta collaborated once again with ‘Un Techo para mi País’ NPO

Reading Time: < 1 minute

One of the actions carried out as part of Hexacta’s 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility plan was the donation and construction of a house for the “Un Techo para mi País” program. This NPO (nonprofit organization) is strongly committed to assist low-income settlements in Latin America and the Caribbean to overcome poverty by providing them with emergency housing and support in different matters. Hexacta collaborates with this program since 2010.

This year the construction took place in La Chechela, Escobar, in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. The beneficiary was a family of 8 members, 3 daughters, 3 sons, and their parents.

Luis Broeders, head of Hexacta´s Corporate Social Responsibility program, shared some words about his experience: “I had mixed feelings about this experience: on one side I felt sadness when seeing how many children grow up in such living conditions. On the other side, I was proud and satisfied about having contributed with this family. This not only has to do with building the house itself, which even though is better than the one they had before, it’s still very precarious, but also with working with the family to show that hard work and effort can change things. This house is just thebeginning of the assistance “Un Techo para mi País” provides and Hexacta is proud of being part of this.”

Despite the difficult global economic situation, in 2011 the company decided to continue and expand the program. These are the projects that had been carried out with budget and staff time during the present fiscal year: (more…)
