Charity is a privileged space for living “in the frontline”. Today more than ever, in the crisis that the pandemic has unleashed on a social and personal level, we want to exchange with those who share the needs of others and directly experience that, in any condition, people can always regain their dignity. We meet people who have set up social works in different parts of the world that share a common feature: they are not there to help those in need but to experience together with them, help recipients with help givers, the greatness and uniqueness of their own existence. What kind of path do these works show for the construction of a new world?
