OUR HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS
- Between 2016 and 2018, our initiative "Merciful Hospitality", has provided among the many accommodations managed by the portal over 32,000 free nights of accommodation for people and poor families. On this initiative Pope Francis has officially expressed "cordial gratitude for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings of filial veneration that has been provided", hoping "an ever more generous commitment to those in need".
- After the tragedy of the earthquake in Central Italy on 24 August 2016, in collaboration with the CEI we located about 600 beds in the religious accommodations, adjacent to the epicenter area, to meet the needs of displaced families, in collaboration with the Protection Civil.
- For the Jubilee of the Prisoners with Pope Francis (November 6, 2016), in collaboration with the General Inspectorate of the Prison Chaplains, we located over 100 free beds for ex-prisoners arriving in Rome.
