The data about poverty bring out the fragile face of our country, a phenomenon whose size is the basis of Intesa Sanpaolo's commitment to promoting greater social cohesion and reducing inequalities.
With a view to identifying impact strategies, which concretely meet the needs of the most fragile people, the Welcome Together project comes to life, which has the ambition to become a system action, combining two important purposes that characterize some of the most significant projects by Intesa Sanpaolo on the social front: the offer of meals and beds for people in a state of fragility.
And so, in Rome, Vicenza and Milan, territories different in geographic position, but similar for emergencies of fragility and impoverishment, we create together with the Diakonia Onlus Association, the Compagnia degli Amici di Gesu, Giuseppe e Maria Onlus Association and the City Angels Association a significant program to ensure food and shelter for those who need it most.
In this way people in a serious state of marginality in Vicenza find shelter in the structures managed by the Diakonia Onlus Association. The same happens in Rome, with the Compagnia degli Amici di Gesu, Giuseppe e Maria Onlus Association for the consolidation of existing interventions and for the completion of the structure being finished at the Tor de 'Specchi Monastery.
Finally in Milan, where every year thousands of people on the margins are welcomed at the centers managed by the City Angels, which guarantee beds, meals and essential accompanying services.
Aware, as we are, of the fact that these numbers translate into looks, voices, people.
This project is carried out in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, set by the Un's 2030 Agenda. For more details, see the Sustainability section.
