Sant'Egidio is calling for online secret Santas and volunteers to offer warmth and joy on Christmas Eve to our homeless and elderly isolated friends in London.
The Covid-19 crisis has made us all retreat and isolate ourselves in the safe space of our homes, going out only for essential shopping, buying online, talking virtually. Perhaps also searching for meaning.
The only people left in the streets are people without a home. And the elderly are even lonelier.
It is now more than ever important to show our homeless friends, and also our elderly lonely friends, that we do care for them and that we are still here for them despite the obstacles.
