The third initiative of Welcoming Bologna: the inauguration of two centres for mothers and children

The third initiative of our project was held on 5th September. The new centres of Gianna Beretta Molla 1 and Gianna Beretta Molla 2 were inaugurated in Bologna; two facilities for mothers and children managed by the association Mondo Donna Onlus, a member of Welcoming Bologna’s task force. The centres host 13 mother-child family units of all origins – both long-term citizens and new-comers – who are very vulnerable and two others who are in a state of semi-autonomy. They receive educational and psychological support on a daily basis.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, the day went on thanks to the workshops organized by the FATATRAC publishing house, the music of the Orchestra Senzaspine and the Syrian food provided by the catering Altre Terre.
