Argentina’s Atlantic shoreline measures 3,100 miles in length. A five hour drive south of Buenos Aires brings travelers to Mar del Plata, the largest beach town resort in the country. If you drive another thirty minutes inland, you will arrive to the humble community of Batan. Here is where Pastor Octaviano Sarmiento and his wife Suzanna care for orphaned, parentless and abandoned children of all ages. They also provide shelter to battered women and their children.
