Comunità di Sant'Egidio Onlus

Comunità di Sant'Egidio Onlus

The Community of Sant’Egidio was funded in Rome in 1968. Now it is spread in 70 different countries, and about 50.000 people take part in it. It is a catholic lay community, whose core is the solidarity with the poor (elderly, migrants, children, Sinti and Roma people…).

Wherever it exists, the Community of Sant’Egidio works for spreading the interfaith dialogue, supporting the people in need, accompanying the peace processes, taking care of the ill (with a focus on HIV/AIDS in Africa through the DREAM excellence program).
