EL ISLOTE of solidarity, life and colour

EL ISLOTE di solidarietà, vita e colore. Oggi vogliamo raccontare una storia molto speciale. Attraverso immagini e sguardi mostriamo come, grazie alla solidarietà, esistano centri come il Rifugio Santa María de La Paz dell’OSJD in Spagna.
Un centro che offre alloggio a uomini che, se non fosse per loro, vivrebbero per strada. La loro missione è prendersi cura di loro per migliorare la qualità della loro vita e promuovere la riabilitazione dei loro problemi fisici e psicologici. Tutti i residenti contribuiscono a rendere questa piccola ISOLA in cui vivono. Tutti si prendono cura di tutto e tutti si prendono cura gli uni degli altri. Attraverso gli occhi di Abril, Adrian, Carlos, Helena, India, Robert e Valeria scopriremo com’è la loro vita quotidiana.

EL ISLOTE of solidarity, life and colour. Today we want to tell a very special story. Through images and glances we show how, thanks to solidarity, there are centres such as the OSJD’s Santa María de La Paz Shelter in Spain.
A centre where they offer accommodation to men who, if it were not for them, would be living on the streets. Their mission is to take care of them in order to improve their quality of life and to promote the rehabilitation of their physical and psychological problems.All the residents help to make this small ISLAND where they live. Everyone takes care of everything and everyone takes care of each other. Through the eyes of Abril, Adrian, Carlos, Helena, India, Robert and Valeria we will discover what their daily life is like.

A big thank you to all the brands who helped and the people who made this possible.
