Salta, Argentina, is a beautiful Argentinean city which has an area called Barrio Solidaridad where about 20,000 people survive on low or very low incomes. The Faithful Companions of Jesus (known to us in Calgary), are building a communication centre with a radio which can be used for communication of information, for education, and for evangelization. They have also established a small public library by renovating existing space. Mission Mexico has provided funding to assist with both of these projects.
