"These cuts do not make noise but are very harmful: who pays most for the crisis in Italy ". Data and proposals of the Community of Sant'Egidio for a fair and accessible welfare for families and for the elderly

 
printable version

From 2008 to 2011 social state funds decreased 800%. This year - said Mario Marazziti, spokesman for the Community - it has ben set to zero, for example, the fund for long-term care. We accept the hard reality of the crisis, but if we do not change the way we spend quality of life will worsen and the whole weight of social welfare will run on the real shock absorber, i.e. the family. All these cuts are transformed into social costs and drama at the individual level."
But Sant'Egidio also has concrete proposals: over four thousand Roman seniors over 75 are assisted today by the operators of the program "Viva gli anziani!" born in 2004. By now the testing phase i over, and we would like to extend the service beyond the Trastevere district of Rome, Esquilino and Testaccio. In the coming months a similar program should start in the district Sanità in Naples.
