La Junta y Cáritas trabajan en 43 proyectos sociales conjuntamente

El Gobierno de Castilla-La Mancha destina un total de 2,9 millones de euros a proyectos de inclusión y atención a las personas con Cáritas en la región para un total de 43 proyectos. Así lo ha explicado la viceconsejera de Servicios y Prestaciones Sociales, Guadalupe Martín, en su visita a la sede de Cáritas en Talavera y a un comedor social que gestiona en el mismo edificio. La viceconsejera ha estado acompañada por la alcaldesa de Talavera de la Reina, Agustina García Élez; por el director de Acción Social, Gregorio Gómez Bolaños; por la concejala de Protección Social y Reducción de la Desigualdad, Nuria Sánchez; y por el sacerdote responsable de Cáritas en Talavera, Vicente Domínguez, y el director de Cáritas Talavera, Ricardo Riesco, según ha informado la Junta en nota de prensa. En la visita, Guadalupe Martín ha destacado que el Gobierno financia un total de 43 proyectos en toda la región en colaboración con las distintas Cáritas Diocesanas de Castilla-La Mancha lo que permite llegar a un centenar de municipios en todas las provincias. «Es un compromiso del Gobierno del Presidente Emiliano García-Page trabajar por la reducción y minoración de la pobreza, especialmente la pobreza severa, manteniendo el objetivo de reducirla a la mitad. Para ello, desde Bienestar Social abordamos el trabajo con las personas que lo necesitan desde los ámbitos del empleo, la salud, la educación, la vivienda y los ingresos mínimos», ha explicado la viceconsejera. Cáritas Toledo y Talavera Guadalupe Martín ha detallado que, de la inversión que destina el Gobierno regional a financiar proyectos de Cáritas --y que permite trabajar en 10 proyectos en la provincia de Toledo--, dos de ellos son en Talavera. Los proyectos desarrollados por Cáritas en la provincia de Toledo son: Santa Marta, destinado a mujeres en contexto de prostitución; Cáritas Integra, atención y acogida integral con inmigrantes; Programa de Viviendas; Voluntariado Diaconía, para formar a voluntarios y acompañantes; y «Actúa para cambiar la realidad que nos rodea», de sensibilización y promoción del voluntariado. Asimismo, la viceconsejera ha recordado que la ciudad de Talavera tiene distintos recursos de Cáritas como son el alojamiento de urgencia 'Virgen de Guadalupe' y servicio de estancias diurnas 'Alfar de Jesed', para personas sin hogar; y 'La Paloma de Jesed', para atender a mujeres en situación de especial vulnerabilidad social. El Gobierno de Castila-La Mancha destina a estos dos proyectos un total de 239.000 euros.

Early December in Croton-on-Hudson
Photo illustration by Miki LoweSevere, biting, disaffected, bleak: These words are used often to describe Louise Glück’s poems. When she won the Nobel Prize in Literature earlier this month, she was praised for writing “that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal.” The same adjectives could apply to “Early December in Croton-on-Hudson,” published in The Atlantic in 1967, in which Glück recalls a blown tire on a trip to deliver Christmas presents.The poem feels precisely like early December itself: as cold and raw as “the recent snow,” as barren and stark as the “pines pared down.” And with the threat of a lonely pandemic winter looming, there’s something particularly chilling about the image of a stalled car on a snowy road—stuck in the middle of a descending darkness, and unable to move forward or go home.— Faith Hill
