CÀRITAS PETRA JOINS THE ALISOL PROJECT

2021.05.24 //

This year, the Alisol Project has increased the number of entities with which it collaborates, increasing both the kilograms distributed weekly as well as the beneficiaries of the project.

One of the entities that have joined to the project is Càritas Petra, which has received in May the first donation of fresh food for its monthly distribution.

Càritas Petra has been helping to the neediest for more than 55 years by offering them basic food in coordination with the Social Services of the Mancomunitat del Pla. In 2019 they opened a new center in the rectory of Parish for the storage and distribution of donations with the aim to create a more welcoming space for both organizers and users.

Respect to the previous year, the number of people coming to the parish has increased by 78%. There are currently 64 families (about 350 people) who benefit from the assistance provided by the parish in its monthly distribution.

A distribution that is made possible thanks to the help of Food Bank, Petra City Council, donations from particular people and now to our Foundation, so that several people in charge of Càritas Petra Parish have expressed their gratitude for the collaboration received.
