Give a hot meal to the children of the Oasi della Pietà with Intesa Sanpaolo For Funding

The kitchen is the heart of a home, the place where everyday life is completed with scents, flavors and nourishment for children: help us set up the new kitchen inside the "Oasi della Pietà" orphanage, which will welcome hundreds of girls and abandoned children. Help us ensure they have hot meals and hospitality. “No child should ever hold a work tool. The only work tools a child should hold are pens and pencils ”(Iqbal Masih).

In favor of the "Bambino Gesù del Cairo Onlus" Association, whose President is Monsignor Gaid Yoannis Lazhi, former Secretary of His Holiness Pope Francis, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group has made available the crowdfunding platform For Funding, in order to collect resources necessary for the construction and preparation of the kitchen of the "Oasi della Pietà" Orphanage, which aims to offer children in need a "home" in which to grow up in dignity, protected from any form of violation of their human dignity, giving them, in this way, also serenity and well-being. The name of the Orphanage "Oasi della Pietà" refers to the precious gift that His Holiness Pope Francis wanted to allocate to this project, that is, a copy of Michelangelo's Pietà.

The aforementioned project was launched following the signing of the Document on "Human Brotherhood for Peace and Common Coexistence" by His Holiness Pope Francis and by the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Taylor, carried out in Abu Dadhi, on 4 February 2019.

This “shelter” in Egypt will take in many children abandoned by their families who are poor or unable to provide for them. For this reason, they become street children, which for them becomes a place in which to learn "new rules" to survive, in which sadly, too often, they face abuse, deprivation, violence and brutality.

The realization of the kitchen of the Orphanage is a first objective to be pursued, considering the value it holds as it refers to the sense of the family, which welcomes and offers meals with affection. The kitchen is one of the fundamental tools of care to be offered to younger guests. To it are added education and health, which represent the primary and inalienable rights for every child.

The kitchen, which the Child Jesus Association of Cairo onlus intends to create for the children of the orphanage and its staff, will necessarily meet the primary requirement of meal safety. It will be a professional kitchen, with furnishings and equipment in step with safety standards, with easily sanitized material and the easiest to maintain, in order to ensure durability and resistance over time.

In the design, particular attention is paid to the functional aspect, linked to the practicality of the environment, whose purpose is to provide all the necessary services for cooking, for storing food and for offering healthy food on the basis of individual needs and habits.

The children welcomed by the "Oasi della Pietà" Orphanage need to be well fed and, therefore, they need a kitchen that respects their needs and their differences, both cultural and physical. For this reason, food will be prepared in the kitchen taking into account the diversity of each little guest, as well as paying attention to the environment.

The "Oasi della Pietà" Orphanage will ensure that "street" children are no longer invisible!

The construction site, opened in 2020, is now 80% of its construction. There are still many jobs to be done, but, with the little of many, we can really make a difference. Once completed, the structure will welcome about 300 children, respecting the religious affiliation of each of them.

To make this dream come true, Intesa SanPaolo has generously and free of charge launched this page of the crowdfunding platform For Funding in Italian and English.
