Casal de pau

Pau casals, artífice de la paz entre los pueblos

Las habitaciones dobles están distribuidas en un espacio más amplio que las individuales, albergando en su interior 2 camas de 90 cm con cómodos colchones y almohadas. Para que no tengas que hacer cola por las mañanas, disponen de baño propio, equipado con ducha, inodoro y lavabo.

Si quieres conocer el casco antiguo de Arbucias, te recomendamos que visites el Castillo de Montsoriu, situado en una colina a más de 600 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Construido entre los siglos XIII y XIV, es una de las construcciones de estilo gótico-militar mejor conservadas de toda Cataluña.

Casal de pica pau

The Domus Pacis – Casal de la Pau Association was formed in 1972 in an attempt to confront and provide a viable outlet for young people who sometimes, after having gone through reformatories, were sent to penitentiary centers as a consequence of crimes related to their evident lack of socialization (extreme poverty or traumatic family and social situations).

The Association understood at that time – as opposed to the traditional thinking that established mistrust as a starting point, and repression and punishment as a method of intervention – that it was necessary to start precisely from trust itself and to sustain coexistence in the recognition and strengthening of the positive aspects that any person possesses.

With the establishment of the so-called social services, a Day Center was set up for young people where training and employment workshops and educational support were provided. As time went by, the profile of the people assisted grew in age and it was considered necessary to create a residence-shelter to provide accommodation for inmates on their release, parole and definitive release. This residence was located in Nazareth and had a capacity for 20 people.

Las instalaciones del Casal de Pau ya están preparadas para acoger la campaña de vacunación. Su uso estaba previsto inicialmente para esta semana, pero la cancelación del suministro de 150.000 vacunas de AstraZeneca -que debían llegar a Cataluña el pasado lunes- ha provocado el aplazamiento de la campaña de vacunación.

La previsión es que el suministro de inoculaciones llegue la semana después de Semana Santa, por lo que será entonces cuando el Casal comience a funcionar como centro de vacunación. El Ayuntamiento también ha manifestado su colaboración con la Consejería de Sanidad en cuestiones logísticas, así como el traslado del personal para llevar a cabo la campaña.

En otoño de 2020 se habilitó el Casal de la Gent Gran de Pau Casals como espacio de apoyo para llevar a cabo la vacunación contra la gripe -y este año se ha considerado necesario utilizar el espacio para las medidas preventivas en relación con el Coronavirus-.

Hasta que el Casal esté en funcionamiento como punto de inoculación, los vecinos que reciban la notificación de la vacuna tendrán que seguir desplazándose a lugares como Vilafranca, Castelldefels, Sant Boi o Tarragona, así como al CAP de Sitges para su pinchazo.

“So far there have been no contagions and let’s keep our fingers crossed,” says the social worker. Since March 11, those responsible for the entity began to take preventive measures. They explained the situation to the inmates, established distancing measures and redoubled cleaning and disinfection. The Domus Pacis association, which was formed in 1972 and has 239 members and numerous volunteers, has published the Casal de la Pau’s plan of measures to reduce the risk of contagion as much as possible.

In addition, on March 19, they received hydroalcoholic gel, which was added to the stocks that the Casal de la Pau had before the coronavirus crisis. “There has been very good support from the Generalitat Valenciana, they call us all the time,” explains the social worker.

Since in-person visits to prisons were restricted, the Casal de la Pau has lost the fluid contact with the prisons that it has always had. “It has reached us that the issue is calm,” the social worker assures us (and sources from the penitentiary unions confirm). “In prisons there are many inmates and the medical and health systems are scarce,” explains Guzman.
