In the beginning of 2002 the Argentine government defaulted on its debt to the International Monetary Fund(IMF). In the next few days the value of the Argentinean Peso dropped to a fraction of its earlier price and 40 percent of the country fell into poverty.
Banks and business closed and people were left without food. In the next few years the situation stabilized. Banks are open, grocery stores have food, and millions of people, that were happy middle-class citizens just a few years ago, are now quite poor.
HelpArgentina came into existance to ameliorate this situation. HelpArgetina's mission is to promote social development in Argentina.
The non-profit organization is based in Buenos Aires, but is registered as a charity in the US.
The organizations founders and board members are prominent members of universities, banks, and former US and Argentine government officials.
