Friends of Catania together with the last ones
Fundraising by Vincenzo Virgilio
We are the friends of Catania and for six years now, together with many young people from the Pope John XXIII Community, we have been going out into the streets every week to meet all the people without a home or food. It is enough to take a walk in the centre, near the bus station, to see how many have lost everything and are alone. We offer them something to eat and drink, but above all we offer them our company. For us, going out into the street is very important because with many we have created a sincere bond, we know their stories and what they live every day. For example, a young man with drug addiction problems that we met on the street, asked for our help and is now in a therapeutic facility of our Community where he is following a path to get rid of his addiction.
They allow us to enter their lives and we, in this way, can understand what they really need: a hot meal, a place to stay, a friend.Help us to support the Un Pasto al Giorno campaign of the Comunità Papa Giovanni XXIII: donate a meal to those in need in Catania and all over Italy!
