Refugee Haven Italy


We stumbled upon this Haven filled with 250 homeless refugee men in the basement of a magnificent church in the heart of Rome. The refuge allows for the men to write resume's to assist in job hunting to shower and shave. They can also have a hot coffee, biscuits, fruit and They are not able to stay in the warmth of the church basement at night so must leave at dusk to brave the cold. Global Empowerment Network did a huge shop for deodorant, razors soap tooth paste tooth brushes biscuits, tea coffee and fresh fruit.

*Photo's are our personal memories of Rome, as photography was forbidden in the refuge*
