In November of 2004, the IGUAZU GRAND Resort Spa & Casino built a public school (School # 837, Barrio Belen) for low-income families in the town of Puerto Iguazu. It has four classrooms, and today it has a total enrollment of 260 students (ages 5 to 12). These children previously had been schooled in a church in one classroom. Now they can study at their academic level and receive lunch daily, an important part of the program provided by the hotel. The hotel provides the school with food, building maintenance and repairs on a weekly basis.
In April 2008, our organization, donated an ambulance to the local hospital which consists of a mobile intensive care unit.
We also donate supplies regularly to Yriapu, the nearby Indian village, the senior citizen center in town, and a day care center in town as well.
IGUAZU GRAND Resort Spa & Casino is dedicated to improving the welfare of the local community through its health and social actions by forging a close bond with local institutions.
