Coronavirus hadn’t a huge impact on housing’s number of admission. During these years it was necessary to readjust several house’s areas in order to guarantee mothers and children safety. For this reason, we have set up two different areas with a specific role: one room available in case of isolation cases and another one instead meant to allow children to follow distance learning in tranquillity. Unfortunately, we had to temporarily suspend all the activities and projects that require for their development experience of sharing. 


Actually, our structures are full: the last entry was on May 5th. One of our lovely mother is about to leave the country because now she’s becoming self-sufficient and she has reached her own stability. We are so happy to announce that another mother has won the assignment of a house and she’s about to moving on and finally leave the center to live her life independently. 


We also have started a kitchen course for our guests in order to teach them good nutrition practices for their children. One of our aims is the integration of foreign families into the society so we are committing to create and promote activities in order to increase children’s ability to relate. 


We are so glad that you are on of our lovely donors and we want sincerely thank you again for your continued support!

The joy of Christmas time has come! During Christmas holidays our guests of Casa Tuendelee had the opportunity to feel even more part of a big family. Everybody knows that Christmas time could taste sometimes bittersweet. Several mothers of our center couldn’t spend holidays time with their families so we decided to spread the warmth and the joy celebrating Christmas all together in a big party!

With the support of our collaborators and donners we were able once again to make them feel a little bit less lonely. We would also share with you the happiness of the children for all the gifts received.

News: A new guest has arrived!

We want to announce you that a new guest has arrived. Another mother and her little child have now a safe place to live. She’s a young woman who experienced in her past life mother abandonment. The father of the child is now looking for a new job so actually the young parents are living apart. We’ll support them in this difficult moment and we hope they’ll soon live together peacefully. 

Let us take the opportunity to wish you happy new year and to thank you once again for your help. We hope you'll keep embracing our cause in the future. Together we can make the difference!

Casa Tuendelee passed last months in harmony and serenity: we spent summer playing, laughing swimming in the local pool.

Here is a short story of one of our operators that we want to share with you:

 “Going to the pool in summer is an experience that sooner or later in life we all do. Especially when it is very hot, it is a way to stay cool and spend a different day, waiting for holidays or as an alternative to the sea when you can not go. For someone who has never seen a pool, it is an unforgettable experience. I propose to a mother to go to the pool, to face a very hot day, she agrees with enthusiasm telling me that she does not know what it takes to go to the pool. We get the necessary, cream, diapers for the water for her baby, bathing suit for the mother, towel... we’re off! We enter the pool and Mom looks at me incredulously: "but it’s beautiful here, it’s all clean and tidy, that’s beautiful here, it’s all clean and tidy, that’s nice!". We enter the water and she and her child play and have fun between discoveries and a few drinks. As we return, the happy mother tells me that when she arrived in Italy she met many people who have advised badly, this experience of hospitality is also showing her another side of our country. The good face of... the more the mother tells, the more I realize that the real work of accompaniment is not only in supporting and being, but also in insinuating into the hearts of our guests that human beings, after all, can be trusted, because they all have a good part worth knowing”.

 Now it’s time to go back to school!

A great news: one of our mothers is finally ready to left the centr! Leaving the center means going back to live alone, testing her economic and relational independence. We are very proud of her and we will be ready to support her in case of need!
Good luck friend!

With this good news, we take the opportunity to thank you again and wish you the best!

These last uncertain months have been caracterized by openings and closures in order to limit the high number of infections. World Health Organization reports more than 4 million confirmed cases of Covid-19 and the vaccination campaign is proceding with almost 21million doses. Although with some difficulties, all boys and girls hosted by Tuendelee Foundation have studied through distance learning.

With the support of operators and in particular thanks to donations of technological tools like laptops, available wifi and data network (monitoring its use) they have been able to keep on attending the classes. During this period of closuers the youngsten have descovered the importance of being present at school, spending quality time with classmates. After the opening of schools last month, some classes have been isolated beforehand for suspected cases of Covid-19. However, some of the boys and girls hosted have decided to attend some classes together at home, respecting social distancing and using all preventive medical devices like masks.

Currently all the young boys and girls hosted in Tuendelee Foundation are concluding their studies and in the meanwhile they have been able to cultivate their own passions, like playing music.
We would like to share with all the donors the link of the video of the song Désolée by Rylo, an artist hosted in the foundation : 

Aleimar and Tuendelee Foundation want to thank all those who support the project and who will continue do to so, always by the side of the most vulnerable women with their sons and daughters in Melzo!

New updates about our social housing project in Fondazione Tuendelee Onlus .

The ongoing Coronavirus emergency and related restrictions continue to affect our day-to-day project, putting us to the test.

Unfortunately, this second lockdown has still put a strain on all of us by also limiting the social relations that these children extremely need.
The educators, in fact, had to comply with the provisions by changing the educational activities that included group games or too much contact.


This pandemic stressed the fundamental importance for the psychological well-being of large and small social groups. Human contact, the sharing of emotions and experiences are not only irreplaceable stages of the growth of children, but continue to be the pivots of the inner evolution of adults themselves.

In September, however, the school started again in the presence of primary school and first grade, while it is still remote for older children.

The good news, however, does not end here, in fact our children and their mothers are all well and two children welcomed began to attend the educational center La Quercia started by about a month by Aleimar in collaboration with the social services of Pioltello.


It is a new territorial reality dedicated to children and young people who attend elementary and middle school and who live in contexts of family fragility.

La Quercia welcomes students in the afternoon, after school, for homework and for fun and recreational activities. To assist them, in addition to the educators of Aleimar, there is also the child protection team of Azienda Futura, in synergy with the city schools.

Finally we wanted to tell you that despite the difficulties of this period, we have also tried to live the magic of Christmas children, who like every year, could not wait to write the letters for Santa Claus.
