In these days of crisis, too many people are unable to buy basic necessities. Families with young children, elderly people, the homeless, people with disabilities, the unemployed, people on layoffs and self-employed, migrants pay the highest price.
Help us to support them.
Together, we support the solidarity commitment of some of our partner associations in Italy. 1 euro for each donation will also support food distribution of our partner Basmeh & Zeitooneh in Lebanon.
