Every day, unfortunately, we learn of sad news that makes the days more poignant, and our desire to make a difference is strong. These feelings are even stronger when the difficulties affect the very people who live near us.
This is why, thanks to you, we have chosen to offer practical support, here in Italy, to the flood victims of Fabbriche (Voltri) in the province of Genoa. The city council has worked with commitment and perseverance to build new emergency housing for four families, who were forced to flee their homes last November due to the flooding of the River Cerusa.
We wanted to make a contribution by financing the furnishing of one of these homes, from the kitchen to the bedrooms, and the dining room to the living room, thanks also to the support of Ikea. But this was not the only thing we wanted to do. We also wanted them to enjoy the new home immediately, so we gave them all the necessary things to live their daily life: plates, glasses, cutlery, towels and much more.
Not forgetting that Christmas was coming, we also provided a beautifully decorated tree and gifts for the children.
With this gesture we hope, with all our heart, that this family as well as all those who are in difficulty, may soon smile again and start a peaceful life.
