Rome, April 8th, 2020 – The pandemic that has struck the country has brought significant changes for our lives. If a part of the population is directly involved in this health emergency, we are all subject to social distancing.
In order to limit the discomfort and the feeling of abandonment caused by these daily challenges imposed by the quarantine, the delegation of Rome and Lazio has activated, from today on, the “blue number” as to provide telephone assistance to all Knights and Dames of the delegation.
Those who need it can contact the volunteers at 06.87800086 from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Volunteers will seek to provide useful information to overcome the barriers determined by the isolation we are all subjected, but also to give a simple word of comfort and friendship
Support from new volunteers will therefore be essential, especially to improve the assistance that can be offered, by increasing the daily hours of activation of the telephone service and, if necessary, by providing home help to the most needy people. Anyone wishing to report their availability, even thought it can be limited, can write to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating their last name, first name, mobile phone number and specifying their availability.
An individual spiritual support service is also active and managed by telephone by the Reverends, Ecclesiastical Knights and other volunteer Priests of the delegation. It will therefore be possible to call them for spiritual comfort, ask them for advice, knowing that no one will be left alone. The priests can be contacted at the following addresses:
