During the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve collaborated with NGOs and foundations to help ease the life of those who need it most.

The Argentine Red Cross is one of the foundations we’ve worked with these months with the continuous cooperation of Micaela Artiaga, a video editor at AWG.

Here she shares with us her experience collaborating hand-in-hand with the Red Cross:

“I’ve been part of the Vicente López branch for about 2 years. I joined as a volunteer after receiving training in first aid, multiple trauma, psychosocial support, and logistics. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
And when the Covid-19 pandemic started, ⁣⁣⁣the Red Cross prepared us with courses to teach us how to support the health system.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
During this time, AWG supported me in many ways. They put together a team of psychologists that helped calm my anxiety, stress, and uncertainty. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
The company also accompanied me in volunteer activities, offering donations to the Red Cross, and transmitting us security amid the chaos.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Within the first three months of quarantine in Argentina, we were able to carry out six blood collections with the branch, gathering more than 400 donors for the Vicente López county hospitals and helping more than 1600 people.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
As a Red Cross volunteer and as part of the company team, I am deeply grateful to AWG for all their help and initiative in these difficult times of change”.
