In the midst of the pandemic and the many difficulties created by the loss of work and the increase in poverty, the Community of Sant’Egidio in New York has built a bridge with the immigrant communities in our city. We offered groceries to friends who recently immigrated from Burkina Faso, a country linked to Sant’Egidio by a long friendship and that we always remember in our prayer for peace. Many of our friends participate in the school of language “English with Friends” that we started a few months ago.
If the pandemics want to divide us. Solidarity and friendship united us and strengthen bridges!
