At the beginning of April we launched an appeal to address what we defined as an “emergency within an emergency”, ie the situation of numerous poor Roma families that the aid machine reaches with difficulty. We raised 1675 euros. It is not an extraordinary figure, but it has allowed us, also thanks to the contribution of various goods received from other associations, to help 30 families without help or with insufficient aid.
We have so far spent 1300 euros. We bought and distributed foodstuffs (pasta, rice, oil, flour, sauces, fruit, vegetables, etc.), soaps and detergents, sanitary towels, diapers, medicines, baby milk, water, etc. and donated small sums for the purchase of gas cylinders for cooking and diesel to run the lighting generators.
But the emergency is not over. The situation of many Roma and Sinti families in marginalized situations continues to be precarious and we have already received other requests for help, which we will hardly be able to deal with without your support. We therefore ask you to continue to help us by paying your contribution to:
Use the reason “Rom: Double Emergency”
Heartfelt thanks to all those who will help us, also to spread our appeal.
