AMERICA/ARGENTINA – “The most excruciating poverty coexists with the most inconceivable wealth”: Social Week 2021 – Agenzia Fides

Buenos Aires (Agenzia Fides) – Social Week 2021 has ended in Argentina, an event that traditionally involves the main protagonists of the country’s business world along with the realities of the Catholic world, particularly involved in the social sphere. From Monday, July 12 to Thursday, July 15, forums and conferences took place virtually, with broad participation. The topics analyzed in these conferences were: food, economy and work, connectivity and education, commitment and faith. The final document reflects the period of health emergency that we are experiencing. In the introduction, the participants acknowledge that the Covid-19 pandemic does not stop, new strains and variants appear, and it will take a long time for vaccination on a global scale to bring us back to normality. The pandemic has hit hard in all sectors: health, social, economic, educational, family, especially the most vulnerable population. Inequality even manifests itself in the distribution of vaccines. “The most excruciating poverty coexists with the most inconceivable wealth. And this is combined with the mistreatment of the land”, reads the text sent to Fides.
