Families Hospitality - Bambino Gesù Foundation
In 2019, UniCredit Foundation confirmed collaboration with the "Bambino Gesù" non-profit Foundation to support the Hospitality Project, aimed at the recovery and renovation of a building near the hospital, to make new temporary housing available to families of long-stay children being treated at the Bambino Gesù hospital in Rome.
Every year the Bambino Gesù Hospital takes in many children who come from outside Rome due to complex diseases, which need long therapeutic courses. In 2019, the Foundation guaranteed hospitality housing to over 5,400 families for over 110,000 nights.
The hospital also welcomes children from foreign countries. In addition, the Bambino Gesù Hospital crossed national borders to bring assistance health and specialist training in different countries all over the world: Central Africa Republic, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Syria, Jordan, Cambodia, India, China, Russia, Haiti, Ecuador and South Korea.
The Bambino Gesù Onlus Foundation, founded in 2000, is a non-profit organisation that supports the activities of the Bambino Gesù Pediatric Hospital, the largest Polyclinic and Pediatric Research Centre in Europe, a reference point for children's health from all over Italy and abroad.
The Foundation plays a central role in social communication and fundraising for the hospital's goals: scientific research and innovation, technology, hospitality of families and humanitarian care.
The Foundation strives to support the demand for services, to improve therapies with modern, accurate and less invasive technologies.
