About Argentina

Argentina is the second largest country in Latin America home to 83 People Groups. The largest people group is the White Argentineans originally descended from Spaniards born in the new world but later absorbing various European ethnicities resulting from encouraged immigration from the Argentinean government in the late 1800´s. The evangelical movement in this country started when Brethren from England came to help build the railway system in the 1800s. Many Argentinian church leaders have also affected surrounding Latin American countries.

In Argentina Christian Aid works with indigenous missionaries who focus on neglected peoples such as the Wichi people who were a tribe of semi-nomadic fishermen first encountered by Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries in the 17th century.
