Covid has made so many people feel lonely and abandoned.
Franco lives in a dormitory at 76 and dreams of an apartment; Luigina cannot walk and is stuck in the house in an eternal lockdown. Antonio shows us the unpaid bills and explains why he can’t manage: the pension is too low, the expenses too high. Nobody can give him a hand. And Covid has made their solitude grow.
They are frail elderly,even more at risk with the health emergency. They have got sick andforgotten. This is why we want to embrace them in the only possible way: with practical help and economic support. Indeed 2,000 senior citizens involved in the project will receive a cheque for 500 Euros by Christimas, to pay for bills, heating and rent.
Let's embrace our grandparents and make them spend a less lonely, merrier Christmas.
