ROME - The Sant’Egidio Community is hosting an event on Sunday, Nov. 18 to mark the second World Poverty Day. Homeless people, refugees, elderly people and children studying at ‘Scuole della Pace’ are all encouraged to attend.

 The idea was born by Pope Francis, and brought to fruition by Giubileo della Misericordia. They aim to bring poor people from the suburbs of Rome into its centre and “into the interests of all Romans.” They believe the event will help create a sense of justice, and make our world more humane.
