COVID-19: ON THE FRONT LINE WITH THE MOST VULNERABLE
The impact of the emergency linked to the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging all of us. A humanitarian organization like ours is deeply involved in the response to this new emergency.
In compliance with the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of March 9, 2020, we decided to close our offices in Rome and Milan until further notice, ensuring the continuation of our activities through smart working, avoiding and preventing any potentially risky behavior, and actively contributing to the protection of collective health.
At the same time, we asked ourselves how to be actively close to our fellow citizens and we decided to start an extraordinary intervention of primary and early prevention of COVID-19 enhancing the action of our medical teams and mobile units in areas of social exclusion in Rome and in the Province of Foggia.
HUMANITARIAN ACTION NEVER STOPS
Our duty is to ensure the continuity of our humanitarian programmes and to provide
