AMMAN, MARCH 29 – A new group of Syrian families will be resettled in Italy thanks to a new “humanitarian corridor”. The Italian Ambassador to Jordan Giovanni Brauzzi bid farewell to the refugees, some of them suffer from critical and serious health conditions.
The initiative, modeled along the scheme put in place by three religious NGO (Comunita’ di Sant’Egidio, Waldesian Table and Federation of the Protestant Churches in Italy), is the first fruit of an agreement between the Jordanian and Italian governments as well as in coordination with the Italian Bishops Conference, the Italian Embassy, the Apostolic Nunciature in Amman, Caritas Italy, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
The families were chosen from Jordanian camps assigned for Syrian refugees. Once in Italy, the ill people will be stationed in Catholic hospitals like “Fondazione Centri di Riabilitazione Padre Pio” and “Casa del Sollievo Della Sofferenza”, while the families will be housed by Caritas Italy within the project “You are a refugee; you are protected in my home”.
