'We are all in the same boat'

Pope Francis

Many people in the world are finding this time extremely difficult due to unexpected changing circumstances, loneliness, illness and safety concerns. Together, we want to be close to anyone needing support at this time, whilst maintaining physical distance and keeping everyone safe, in line with government regulations. Feel free to contact us if you'd like to get involved and join our community.

If you know of anyone who is struggling to buy food and essential PPE items during this COVID-19 crisis, please call us:


Mon-Sat from 5pm to 8pm

We continue to distribute food weekly to our homeless and older friends that are struggling to eat.

“We have to keep helping the community”

— Diane from France

We have set up an emergency number for anyone with a non-medical need, and are calling all our older friends regularly.

— Marilena from Italy

"We need to help each other in every moment, every day of our lives, especially in this moment"
