HELPING REFUGEES ARRIVING IN TORINO, ITALY & SURROUNDING AREAS
WE ARE CURRENTLY ON VACATION, PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE AUGUST 20TH FOR UPDATES
Fleeing their homes, leaving everything behind, refugees are arriving in Italy with little more than the clothes on their backs.
Provide every refugee child arriving in Torino with a “welcome box” containing clothes, shoes, underwear, hygiene articles and a toy upon arrival.
Our boxes go to refugees ARRIVING in Torino and surrounding areas.
We are expecting 70.000 refugees in Piemonte in the next weeks.
The people of Torino are coming together to help, in whatever way they can.
We will keep going as long as it’s needed.
HOW WE DISTRIBUTE BOXES:
We are working closely with the Ukrainian Consulate here in Torino, ensuring that any group of refugees they know are coming are met with the exact age and gender range of boxes, upon arrival at their destination.
If you or someone you know is coming or has already arrived in Torino without luggage, please do get in touch; we distribute from our location with Istituto Alfieri-Carrù. Pick up is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, please call first!

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
IN THE BOX
Clothes, shoes, undergarments, hygiene products and toys are lovingly gathered and packed by volunteers based on the age of the receiver. Our goal is that every child that arrives should at least have the necessities.
We recognize that this needs to be done in a systematic way that is easy to distribute. We have come up with the idea to collect and pack an individual box per child. Each box is packed according to age and gender. All boxes are put together entirely based on donations of items; we do not accept money, which is what allows us to be flexible and move quickly.
