Community Activities for Peace Road Argentina 2023

Godoy Cruz City, Argentina—An open community training for Breastfeeding Month was held in Godoy Cruz City, Mendoza Province, on August 12, 2023. This was organized by Red Manos Unidas, provincial institutional representative of Peace Road Mendoza 2023, and by Just Serve and Rotaract Club Godoy Cruz (1).

During the family-led meeting, mothers expecting a baby, those in charge of children, and participants learned about taking care of newborns, healthy nutrition during pregnancy and breastfeeding, safe sleep and CPR for breastfeeding mothers and children.

“When the mother cuddles and nurtures her baby, she initiates them into the path of love, sowing the peace that humanizes and gives us life,” claims the civil association Red Manos Unidas, directed by Dr. Susana Lucero. This network supports high-risk newborns from Mendoza’s public hospitals and trains institutions and employers to include in their agenda the improvement of work conditions for breastfeeding mothers.

Children’s Day Celebration

The Children’s Day celebration at Lagomaggiore Hospital’s main hall, in Mendoza City on August 18, also supported Peace Road 2023, with more than 100 participants. At the event, gifts were given to the health team and families and their children: “Adding actions to sow values,” in cooperation with deputy Laura “Lula” Balsells Miró.

Artistic Festival

Peace Road 2023, “Argentina Chooses Peace,” began on July 29 with an artistic festival in Plottier City (Neuquén), showcasing the works of more than 80 artists from 14 countries (2). This will be presented in all provinces through November, with solidary, ecological, educational, artistic, sportive, interreligious or intercultural activities, for the dignity, common good and peace of each person (3).

Peace Road, which develops mobilizations and activities in countries in all regions, is a peace campaign promoted globally by UPF with the theme “Connecting the World through Peace.” Its objective is to create higher interrelation between nations and cultures, raising higher commitment of the international community to solve local and global issues, from violence and poverty to the global refugee crisis, climate change and peace in the Korean peninsula (4).
