The elderly are one of the populations most impacted by the coronavirus. They were perhaps the first to isolate themselves to care for their health. For many, isolation has evolved into desperate loneliness. In response to this drama, “Youth for Peace” launched the #SaveOurElderly initiative. The goal is to accompany, from a distance, seniors who feel alone.

The campaign can be followed in other countries through the Sant'Egidio website. Help us to raise awareness and save our elderly!
