Christmas is near. We want it to be a feast for everyone

These days in Uganda (Kampala), the Community of Sant’Egidio & other Communities of Sant'Egidio around the world are preparing the Christmas lunch for all those who are lonely, or too poor: they are the elderly without a family, those who have become homeless or jobless, and those who are ill. In many European countries, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, many people are waiting for this day.

The street children, those in prison, those discriminated for their illness or poverty.

For more than thirty years, at Christmas we celebrate with them! Last year, at Christmas, more than 150,000 people attended the Christmas lunch.
