Social and Charity
In spring 2022, Europe was struck by a new emergency. After the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, managing the reception of women and children in Italy and on the war border required a massive effort by all major solidarity institutions. In particular, we allocated a contribution to Caritas Italiana to support Caritas Ukraine abroad, the Caritas ‘Open to Ukrainians’ project in Italy and the reception projects in our regions carried out by 20 diocesan Caritas in as many cities.
We also continued to support the weaker segments of the population on the inclusion front with several projects throughout Italy involving disabled people, the sick and disadvantaged families.
