“S is 31 years old. He arrived in Italy a little over a month ago, having made an exhausting journey on foot from Pakistan to Milan, via the Balkan route. To make the journey even harder, one of his feet was horribly broken and went untreated."
The medical crisis that has affected Italy in 2020 is beginning to leave another crisis in its wake. A new poverty is becoming a daily reality for many people. Large families, old people living alone, poor young people and workers in the industries hardest hit by the crisis have found themselves struggling to feed themselves and their children day to day.
It was to help those people that we launched ‘Nobody Left Behind: Supporting those in need through unprecedented times’. The project sees EMERGENCY deliver free packages of food and basic goods to people who need help at this difficult time and have nowhere else to go.
