Fr. Don Vettese, SJ, with Calendar, a leader of the garbage dwellers in Panama.
On January 17, 2012, National Jesuit News featured International Samaritan in their article “The Holy Spirit Drives Jesuit to Serve Garbage Dump Communities.”

From an interview with Fr. Vettese, the article captures the history of our organization, beginning with the first trip to the Guatemala City garbage dump in 1994.  It highlights our efforts that led to recognition by the United Nations, as well as the impact our service trips have on student volunteers.
