Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo

Abuelos de Plaza de Mayo is an organization that helps to find the disappeared children. Many babies were kidnapped with their parents, some after their parents were killed, and others were born in clandestine detention centers where their mothers were taken after having been sequestered at different states of their pregnancies. The babies' grandmothers, tried desperately to locate them and, during these searches, decided to unite. Thus, in 1977, the non-governmental organization called Abuelas (Grandmothers) de Plaza de Mayo was established, dedicated specifically to fighting for the return of their grandchildren. They relentlessly investigated their children's and grandchildren's disappearances in hopes of finding them.
