From south to north, solidarity helps to look to the future. The interventions of the Community of Sant'Egidio of central-southern Italy and Sicily for the Veneto struck by the flood.

"The friendship helps to look to the future." says Rosa, leaving the parish hall of Cresole, one of the places most hardly hit by the flood of recent days in the area of Caldogno.

It's just finished a meeting with a delegation of the Community of Sant'Egidio of Sicily, Campania and Lazio, in Veneto from Saturday to visit the people of the most affected towns in the area of Padova and Vicenza. They came armed with guitars and sweet, but also aid to be distributed to those affected by the violence of the flood.

At Cresole, the aid was delivered to the parish priest, Fr Gaetano Bortoli and to representatives of the mayor: IKEA vouchers to address the most urgent needs of families after the floods of recent weeks which has caused here, as well as large damages, also a victim.

The Communities of Sant'Egidio tightened around those who have suffered most due to flood damages. Families, children, the elderly, have expressed their gratitude for this unexpected visit that brought not only material aid, so much useful, but also broke the sense of isolation and anguish of those hours, giving back a bit of confidence to face the future with more serenity.

On Saturday morning a similar meeting took place in Casalserugo and on Sunday afternoon in Saletto, near Montagnana.
