Italy - Progetto accoglienza
UniCredit Foundation supported the Fondazione Bambino Gesù Onlus to promote housing assistance for the families of children who are long-term inpatients.
Every year, the Bambino Gesù Paediatric Hospital provides over 1,900,000 services and more than 28,000 hospital stays for children and young people from all over the world who are welcomed, treated and helped together with their families.
In 2017, approximately 3,500 families were welcomed, with more than 89,000 nights covered free of charge across the 20 residential structures belonging to Bambino Gesù.
In light of its ongoing desire to support children in difficulty, in 2018 UniCredit Foundation donated € 25,000 to the Fondazione Bambino Gesù Onlus in support of its “Progetto Accoglienza”, with the specific aim of renovating one building near to the hospital, to be used to house families with children who are long-term inpatients.
