Kiev, Ukraine - Friendship and support to the ones suffering for violence

Pope Francis recently said he thinks about "the drama of those who suffer the consequences of violence in Ukraine: of those remaining in the areas devastated by a war that have already caused several thousands of deaths, and those - over a million - urged to leave for the situation": "The ones suffering are especially the elderly and children. In addition to accompanying them with my constant thought and prayers, I decided to promote a humanitarian support in their favor ".
To this end, the Pope announced a "special money collection" in all Catholic churches in Europe for next Sunday. 

In the picture the friendship of the Sant'Egidio Community in Kiev for the elderly.
