Beyond his undeniable soccer talent, one of the things that recurrently characterize the Ten, Diego Maradona, is his participation in solidarity campaigns. This time in the month of his 60th birthday, he will start the project “La ten del 10”.
Together with the Argentine Red Cross and the national deputy Nicolas Rodriguez Saá, they will bring health aid to several cities in our country. This first action will take place on October 30 -the day of Diego’s birthday- in Villa Palito, in the Matanza Party. This is one of the many popular neighborhoods with the most needs in Argentina. In that first approach, three trucks full of sanitary kits will be delivered in the framework of this Covid-19 pandemic.
In addition, works will be done in the pasture that bears the name of the father Bachi, who was one of the villeros priests who did so much to improve that sector of society, and was one of the leaders in helping Villa Palito. Unfortunately, being a risk factor and being constantly exposed, he ended up dying of coronavirus.
The priest Basilio “Bachi” Britez He was the parish priest of the San Roque González church, in the Almafuerte neighborhood, in San Justo, and died after being hospitalized for three months at the San Camilo Clinic due to the Covid-19 infection.

Previously, Francisco had sent a message of support for the “villeros priests” who contracted coronavirus, and he referred especially to the father “Bachi”, whom he defined as “the pioneer of Villa Palito”.
