ACP Humanitarian Aid gathers 12 associations from Turin which help homeless, ex convicts waiting for employment, families with a single-income or no regular income. Those associations also act in healthcare, prevention and integration fields.
One of the most important activities is the collection and distribution of long-life and fresh food, including fruit and vegetables.
ACP Humanitarian Aid makes available spaces with refrigerators, storage and areas for food and clothes distribution. In 2018 we collected 40.000 kg of food and 20.000 kg of clothes.
Current situations and future challenges
In some Italian areas, the unemployment rates are hitting 23% mark, while 40,1% of are young people are out of work (2016 ISTAT data). ISTAT has recently estimated that 4.742.000 people are living in absolute poverty. A material poverty often leads to a spiritual and moral poverty of the person, who ends up in a state of isolation. For those people being part of society becomes always harder. Challenges are copious and huge. ACP can't tackle them all, but decided to take action and give a contribution, upholding rooted local organizations.
