A new van for the "Our Lady of Providence" family home

The Family Home "Madonna della Provvidenza" in Giarre, Catania, offers love and support to children and people with disabilities, providing love and care to anyone who needs it. There are 14 in the family and now they need your help to buy a new, safe and reliable bus for all their daily activities, but they cannot cover the 20,000 euros needed. You can help them too: come on, are you in?

It is love that heals wounds
The Family House "Our Lady of Providence" is located in Giarre, a small town in the province of Catania. Here Raffella and her husband Mario chose to open their home to those who needed a family: boys from prison, children and people with disabilities. Now there are 14 of them in the house, including their natural children and a community sister who helps them and shares with them the vocation of being a family for those who are alone. In Raffaella and Mario's home, children with severe disabilities that no one wanted have become adults, surrounded by the love that only a family can give.

A big bus for a big family
A typical day at the "Our Lady of Providence" family home is no different from that of many families--some go to work, some to school, some to the day care center. With 13 people, there are many trips to make, and to make them you need an adequate and reliable vehicle. Raffaella and Mario's Family Home urgently needs to buy a new bus because theirs, after 300,000 km and 20 years of use has broken down.

20,000 euros are needed, but the Community, which already has to take care of the needs of the other entities, is unable to meet this expense at this time. A proper minibus is essential for the daily life of the house and to allow the whole family to go out all together, sharing special moments.

You can support this project in two ways:
  • Donate to an already active personal fundraiser: any contribution, even the smallest, will make a difference.
  • If, on the other hand, you want to do something even bigger, activate a personal fundraiser and help us get many new people involved that we otherwise could not reach by asking your friends, family and colleagues to support you with a donation.
Other ways to donate
You can also donate by bank transfer or postal bulletin.
