Genoa – The Church of Genoa “is ready to welcome Afghan families by providing, in a first phase, approximately 20 beds at the Archiepiscopal Seminary ‘Benedict XV’, places that could be expanded in case of greater need. This is a first availability – explains in a note Monsignor Andrea Parodi, episcopal vicar for the service of Charity and director of Caritas Diocesana – on which we are working in constant comparison with the Municipality of Genoa and the Prefecture, taking into account the continuous evolution of these days so dramatic. They are places intended primarily for families, in all probability a part of those currently hosted in Sanremo “.
From the earliest days they arrive at the offices of the Diocesan Caritas willingness to welcome in private apartments, offers of baby beds and other basic necessities. “We really thank everyone for the ability to share – said Parodi -. At this moment, however, the situation is still very fluid and it is difficult to specify which material goods are most needed. As for offers of accommodation in apartments, in a note addressed yesterday to the Diocesan Caritas, Caritas Italiana underlines that in this phase the reception of refugees will take place in a congruous manner within the Sai and Cas systems through the Ministry of the Interior “.
