Our initiatives to support people struggling with social-economic hardship caused by the pandemic and Ukrainian minors and their families.

Our tangible actions in Italy

In our Country, the projects by Eni Foundation – the association created at the end of 2006, to promote and implement social and humanitarian initiatives, in Italy and worldwide -  are addressed both to people struggling because of the pandemic crisis, and to Ukrainian children and adolescents and their families, in difficulty due to the war.

In particular:

Editions of the “Non siete soli” project

The "Non siete soli" initiative – created to tackle the social-economic consequences faced by the most vulnerable people – has reached and helped some of the groups struck by the difficult situations occurred over the last years. Here are the results we’ve reached:

  • 2022: home delivery of 4,600 food parcels to seniors over 70, struggling due to the economic crisis, worsened by the Ukrainian conflict in Milan, Naples and Rome
  • 2021: home delivery of 4,600 food parcels to seniors over 70 struggling due to the social-economic difficulties caused by the pandemic
  • 2021: creation of projects to support children and adolescents in social difficulty and with eating disorders in Ravenna, Gela, Taranto and Porto Torres
  • 2020: distribution of 20,000 food parcels to 6,700 seniors over 80 in poverty and social isolation, in Milan, Naples and Rome.

Una Vacanza Una Esperienza Per la pace

The “Una Vacanza Una Esperienza Per la pace” project, involved a program with entertaining, study and sport experiences while exploring nature, as actions of international solidarity to mitigate the consequences of the war suffered by Ukrainian children, adolescents and adults, in Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and Marche. Enhancing the territory and local traditions of the hosting venues, this initiative provided 1190 spots, for several 20 night/21 day stays, and was aimed at creating a common ground, through universal languages, such as games, music, art and physical movement, and also moments for discussion, to help each participant recover their mental and physical well-being, with the help of educators, doctors and psychologists.
