Joss Stone visits TJ
March 8th , 2015
Todos Juntos was very excited to announce a visit in March by the British soul singer, Joss Stone.
Joss chose Todos Juntos as her charity of choice for her Argentine visit and contacted the founder, Fiona Ambrosi. She handed out school bags filled with school supplies to a hundred primary school children in the slums surrounding the dental clinics.
Joss commented: "It's nice to see projects that are working. Today I've been able to meet Fiona, who is very grass roots and doing all she can."
Joss has visited other slums while touring, but the grime in Villa Carcova made quite an impact. "What shocked me most was how dirty it is. I don't now why it is - maybe it's lack of education. The people looked fairly healthy but their teeth are messed up as they don’t have good dental care, and the kids had big bellies and skinny arms. But they were so polite"
The visit was filmed and will be featured in a documentary to be aired on television when the tour is over.
