From September 2019 to February 2023, this project enabled young people with Down syndrome to manage their daily life independently and to be socially integrated in a path towards housing autonomy.
Since July 2019, Ukrainian families with children with cancer have a real home to live in while being treated in Kiev, with free high quality services. This is an extremely effective service, which Rosa Prístina, Soleterre, and Zaporuka are very proud of. On March 3, 2022, the war forced the Dacha to close for an indefinite period, and since then funds from the project have helped to bring the young patients to safety in specialized hospitals in Europe to continue their treatment, and where we can still give their families some financial support.
In 2020 the Covid-19 epidemic has changed each and everyone’s lives. It is not only a public health crisis but an economic one, causing financial hardship and extreme poverty. And so we couldn’t just stand idly by and do nothing, simply “stay at home”…
We had support Caritas, the charitable arm of the Diocese of Pisa, as well as the Hospital and the Local Health Authority of Alessandria.
