LAS PANTERAS ACTIVITY IN TUCUMAN INCLUDED SOCIAL WORK

Tucuman, Argentina, June 6, 2016 - Las Panteras did not only play their weekend matches in Tucuman city but also did volleyball and social activities as part of the plan of broadcasting volleyball all over the province. The Argentine delegation was welcomed by the Director of the Padilla Hospital, Doctor Olga Fernandez and the Under-Director, doctor Alejandro Lembo. The players moved around the hospital visiting the different service putting emphasis in the importance of donating organs, an activity that is headed in the province by Padilla and Donante Hospitals.

They also visited the monument that was inaugurated May 30th remembering the "Anonymous Donan Heroes".

To have some relative in the waiting list, that must go through dyalisis, is a very expensive and painful treatment and therefore Hugo Senes, the doctor of the donan team pointed out the great work that the Padilla does to carry out the work on patients that can not afford it.

Las Panteras always work towards the donar of organs. One of them, Mimi Sosa is part of the Donation Association.

Tener a un familiar en lista de espera, que tiene que someterse a diálisis, implica procedimientos muy costosos. En ese sentido el doctor del plantel Hugo Senes destacó la labor que el Padilla realiza para pacientes sin obra social. “No sé si en otro país se hace esto, me voy sumamente emocionado, con una gran alegría de que acá en Argentina se puede hacer, además de haber conocido personas con una gran calidad humana y que brindan un excelente servicio a la comunidad”, manifestó.

"Today we are very proud of this visit, a great human being group and that supports our goal of Donating Organs. We thank them for their visit. It is a great event for our hospital and of course, we are thankful for your attitude towards Public Health, but over all in the name of the patients that stand in the waiting list" added Doctor Fernandez.

At the event also attended the Chief of the Organ Procurement, Doctor Carlos Eckhardt and the Chief of the Procurement Department, Doctor Santiago Villavicencio.
