“Marists for Ukraine” – first intervention implemented in December 2022

The project was implemented in December 2022 within the initiative “Marists for Ukraine” promoted by FMSI, Secretariat of Solidarity and Secretariat of Education and Evangelization and the recently signed Memorandum of understanding between Community Santo Egidio and FMSI.
