Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo
Grandmothers of the 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 Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo was established, dedicated specifically to fighting for the return of their grandchildren. They relentlessly investigated their children and grandchildren's disappearances in hopes of finding them.
Global Ministries is saddened to announce the passing of one of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo's founders, Chicha Mariani.
