Humanitarian corridors for refugees - DONATE NOW »

On Monday 29 February, the first large group of Syrian refugees from Beirut will arrive at Fiumicino who, thanks to the humanitarian corridors, will enter safely and legally in Italy. They are 24 families, 93 people in all - including 41 children – that, by virtue of their condition of vulnerability, have been granted a humanitarian visa of limited territoriality released by the Italian embassy in Lebanon. Most of the families come from Homs, the Syrian city now razed to the ground. Others from Idlib and Hama. Once in Italy, they will be moved to different locations.

On 4 February, the little Syrian Falak, ill with a tumour, and her family had come to Rome actually opening the first legal passage to Europe.

Humanitarian corridors are a pilot project that, in the framework of an agreement reached in mid-December between the Italian government, the Community of Sant'Egidio, the Federation of Evangelical Churches in Italy (FCEI) and the “Tavola Valdese”, foresees the arrival of a thousand people in two years, not only from Lebanon, but soon also from Morocco and Ethiopia.

To participate in the briefing, journalists can apply for accreditation by sending, before 13:00 Friday 26 February, the request with a copy of the identity card to the Press Office of ADR, to the attention of Francesco Albertario - [email protected]
