No one chooses to end up under the bombs of a war, regardless of where they live, the colour of their skin, whether they are a man, a woman or a child.

As Scalabrinian Missionaries of Europe and Africa, we have always been sensitive to the many conflicts that are still being fought in the world. In our projects and missions, we commit ourselves every day to offer our support to the victims of every human exodus, to the many migrants and refugees fleeing poverty, persecution, war and despair.

Today we want to take action to also support all the people fleeing the war in Ukraine, regardless of their citizenship. Many of them have already arrived on our territory, many will arrive in the coming weeks.

For this reason, as SIMN Europe Africa through ASCS, we are starting #WeCareForUkraine, a fundraising and awareness-raising campaign that wants to give a concrete answer to this dramatic situation that is upsetting the lives of millions of people.


Social Emergency

We collaborate with some local realities that have already activated collections of medical and food products to be sent to Ukraine or to the border countries. We will also donate basic necessities to families and people affected by the war who come to our projects and missions in Europe.

Housing Emergency

We support people and families arriving from Ukraine, some of whom have already been taken in by ASCS projects in Italy. Working in a network with other partners, we want to accompany those in need in their search for housing, also acting as an intermediary between people looking for accommodation and those who want to open their homes to welcome them.

Health Emergency

We promote the physical and psychological health of those who are suffering the consequences of war. With the WASI project, a psychological desk for migrant women, already active for the Ukrainian Community in Milan, we want to increase individual and group meetings with native-speaking psychologists.


In the different Scalabrinian projects and missions in Europe, we are already active with different initiatives in support of the great humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. We want to tell you what we are doing in our realities to face the different emergencies.
