Oasis of mercy / A chance for dignity

Poverty in southern Italy is the photography of an unequal country. In 2018, the Calabria region had the higher percentage of population at risk of relative poverty. The objective of our project was to give the possibility, to those who are poor and in need, of recovery. Taking care of your own person is the first step for social reintegration and is essential for human dignity. Our beneficiaries are disadvantaged people, homeless–Italians and foreigners–and immigrants. With the help of the social partnership and the local institutions, we have provided night shelter, shower, clothes, soup kitchen, social care and free healthcare.
