Our teams are providing medical, logistical and water and sanitation expertise in hospitals and nursing homes, particularly in the Marche and Lombardy regions, in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We work with migrants and refugees who come to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea, providing them mental healthcare across multiple reception centres in Sicily’s Trapani province, where a team of cultural mediators and psychologists screen asylum seekers for psychological vulnerabilities and provide care to those in need.
For migrants in transit along Italy's borders with France, Switzerland, and Slovenia, we provide medical care, shelter, psychological care, food and other essential items.
