Two buses to bring help

The Bethlehem Hut in Montodine (CR) of the Pope John XXIII Community is the home of those who once lived on the streets, where they can start a new life. The 11 people who now live here want to give back the help they received. So they collect food and surpluses from local supermarkets and deliver them to families in need. They also collect furniture that someone donates, disassemble it, transport it and reassemble it in the homes of those who do not have enough resources to buy it. Today there is an urgent need to replace the two vans used for these activities. Help them not to stop, every contribution is important!

I have a brother in Lesbos waiting for me.

Thousands of men, women and children who have fled war and misery arrive at the Lesbos refugee camp in Greece with the hope of a new beginning, but here they discover only more suffering.

At the side of those who live on the street

In Italy, 50,700 people have no home other than the street, and more than 40% are Italian. The Pope John XXIII Community welcomes them in its Bethlehem Huts, 9 houses throughout Italy where we live with the homeless. It meets them in the 10 street units that go out every evening to meet those on the streets and in the 3 soup kitchens where we feed hundreds of people every evening. Support us to continue to give comfort and a future to those who have lost everything.
