The Municipality of Padova, the Diocese and the Provincial Volunteer Centre of Padova present the project “Per Padova noi ci siamo” (For Padua we are here), combined with a fundraising campaign
In a few days, in the territory of Padova many noteworthy initiatives were spontaneously born to respond to the basic needs of the most fragile people, such as grocery shopping. At the same time, some shop owners have given their availability to help and the associations that have always been committed to support basic needs, are trying to continue their services.
Anyway, the government’s indications are clear: it is necessary, for the sake of everyone, to stay at home.
To combine the needs and the resources of the community and at the same time be sure to operate in safety, the Municipality, the Diocese and the Volunteer Centre, together with the Civil Protection and with the support of Banca Etica and Produzioni dal Basso decided to join their forces setting up a coordination among all the social components of the city of Padova and activating an important fundraising campaign to collect money to support the most extreme areas of fragility.
The aim is to provide an adequate response to the primary needs of people with vulnerability in the period of health emergency and post-emergency, so that it will not turn into a social emergency.
