Progetti di contrasto alla povertà AMU

Le imprese che aderiscono all’EdC condividono i propri utili annuali per tre finalità: progetti di sviluppo e assistenza a favore di persone in necessità, percorsi di formazione alla cultura del dare, consolidamento e crescita dell’impresa.

Per la prima di queste finalità, EdC collabora strettamente con AMU - Azione per un Mondo Unito ONLUS, la quale gestisce parte degli utili messi in comune dalle imprese, per realizzare progetti di sviluppo che restituiscano lavoro e dignità a persone in condizioni di vulnerabilità sociale ed economica.

Insieme sviluppiamo e realizziamo progetti per l’avvio ed il consolidamento di attività produttive ad elevato impatto sociale, che creino nuova occupazione per persone in condizioni di vulnerabilità. In questo modo, persone che altrimenti dipenderebbero dall'aiuto esterno hanno l'opportunità di migliorare e valorizzare le proprie competenze lavorative, arrivando a guadagnare con il proprio lavoro il giusto compenso che consenta a loro e alle loro famiglie di vivere degnamente.

I progetti partono sempre dalle proposte delle nostre associazioni partner locali che, ispirandosi ai valori dell'EdC, lavorano a stretto contatto con le situazioni di miseria nel mondo.

L’esperienza maturata sul campo e i valori alla base del nostro lavoro hanno consentito di sviluppare in questi anni quello che definiamo “sviluppo di comunione”: una prospettiva di sviluppo fondata sulla capacità di ciascuno di donare qualcosa di sé e dei beni a propria disposizione, anche in condizioni di grave necessità. Per questo in ogni progetto prevediamo forme e strumenti specifici per attuare la reciprocità del dono, segno di protagonismo da parte delle persone coinvolte e garanzia di un genuino percorso di sviluppo umano integrale.

Bilancio sociale

A luglio 2021 AMU ha pubblicato il Bilancio Sociale 2020, lo strumento che intende comunicare con incisività e sincerità la vita del' associazione, l’impegno di soci e collaboratori, gli impatti del suo lavoro, ma soprattutto mantenere viva e diffondere la tensione verso un Mondo Unito.

#AMU - Ukraine: working with Caritas-Spes to support the people

With donations received through the appeal launched by the Focolare Movement’s Emergency Coordination Team, AMU and AFN, we are primarily supporting Caritas-Spes Ukraine in providing emergency aid to thousands of people forced to leave their homes and flee to the border or take refuge in underground shelters set up where possible.

The actions of war in Ukraine do not stop and among the population there are thousands of displaced people fleeing and many trying to survive between shelters and emergency shelters, where you can receive initial support.

With the contributions collected through the appeal launched by the Emergency Coordination of the Focolare Movement, AMU and AFN are supporting first of all the actions of Caritas-Spes Ukraine, which is providing first aid to thousands of people forced to abandon their homes to flee to the border or to take refuge in underground shelters set up in the footprint where possible.

AMU EmergenzaUcraina 03 ridCaritas-Spes is committed to providing safe shelter, food, medicines and hygiene products, as well as psychological support to some 500 displaced mothers and children housed in its centres. More than 2,500 people are also receiving help from parish branches of Caritas and 14 canteens that are still active in Kyiv, Lutsk, Berdiansk, Kamenets-Podolsky, Zhytomyr, Kharkiv, Lviv, Odessa, Vinnitsa and other towns in the Transcarpathian region.

The war images being broadcast every day from Ukraine by international media and stories from our contacts on the ground, like Mira, a Slovenian focolarina living in Ukraine and collaborating with Caritas-Spes, describe the state of emergency of a people under siege, defenceless in the face of the bombardments, thousands lining the routes to the borders or taking refuge in basements and shelters where makeshift beds have been set up, waiting for a hot meal, drinking water and electricity.

At the border with Poland, the queue of people desperate to cross the border is tens of kilometres long. Caritas-Spes in Lviv has organised specific assistance for mothers trying to flee with their children, even tiny ones, in their arms. They need everything, especially hot water to prepare meals or change nappies.

In Odessa which is currently under attack, shelters are being set up, even under the cathedral. Everything is punctuated by the sound of sirens announcing the arrival of danger or its temporary cessation.

In Vinnitsa, a psychologist is organising online training sessions for volunteers and aid workers on providing psychological help in stressful situations such as this.AMU EmergenzaUcraina 02 rid More than 120 people have already taken part in the first session.

The emergency fundraising campaign relating to the war in Ukraine, which is being managed by the Focolare Movement’s Emergency Coordination Team (AMU and AFN), has already raised 100.000 Euros and an initial transfer of funds has been made to the area which will be used to support Caritas-Spes’ activities to provide emergency aid for Ukrainian families.

We are also assessing the possibility of supporting the costs of accommodating the many Ukrainian refugees arriving in neighbouring countries, like Slovakia and Poland, welcomed by the generosity of local families who are opening their homes to them.

Unfortunately, military action has not ceased and, as local contacts confirm, the needs will increase. Ongoing updates on the outreach efforts we are making on the ground are available on AMU and AFN's web and social channels.
