It is redundant to talk about the titanic task carried out by the foundation presided over by the pediatrician Abel Albino but, although there are still those who do not know that the CONIN Foundation works to eradicate childhood malnutrition in Argentina.
CONIN was founded by Dr. Abel Pascual Albino on September 4, 1993. Albino took the successful model of CONIN Chile, devised by its founder Dr. Fernando Mönckeberg, who successfully managed to break the scourge of child malnutrition in his country and thanks to which Chile has the lowest malnutrition index in Latin America.
Currently, CONIN has replicated more than 100 Prevention Centers distributed in 18 provinces of Argentina. In turn, there are CONIN Centers in the Republic of Paraguay, in the Republic of Peru, and in The Gambia (Equatorial Africa).
The motivating idea of this task is to make aware that if a child is not well fed during its first years of life, its little brain will not develop fully, so it will have consequences for the rest of its existence since, as an adult, it will be intellectually deficient. Therefore, with small malnourished people, we will not have a future since Argentina will have a high percentage of inhabitants without the capacity to fully develop on their own and, much less, to create conditions for collective development.
Those interested in registering can do so via the web page of the foundation or in person at the headquarters of CONIN, located at 25 de Mayo 859 or Liniers 44 de Ciudad. For inquiries you can call (0261) 4205004. There are special discounts for family groups and running groups.
