In the early hours of Monday, September 4, a powerful landslide caused by heavy rains destroyed part of the school where the Recycled Instruments Orchestra of Cateura operates, in Paraguay, internationally famous for turning waste from a landfill into pieces with which they perform their music. The landslide caused a significant material loss in the structure building and in more than 50 musical instruments. Click here to help rebuild the classrooms again
