LEND A HAND TO Homeless PEOPLE
Having a roof over your head is not a privilege to be taken for granted. Every year, many people end up living on the streets, without a helping hand and a friendly hand to help them. And unfortunately, it happens much more easily than one might think.
That’s why Italian Red Cross volunteers are committed to providing all the support these people need: food, clothing and basic health care, but also crisis services, counseling, job training and special programs for the homeless in the city of Florence.
