Project “Opera 5. Social-health support in the metropolitan area of ​​Naples

In October 2021 we received notification of the acceptance of our socio-health project initiative and are one of the 11 projects selected throughout Italy

The project, financed by Fondazione Con il Sud, of which Pio Monte is the lead coordinator, in line with the fifth work of Corporal Mercy, intends to strengthen and systematically reorganize the social and health services that Pio Monte with its partnership have been implementing for many years, to the advantage of people in fragile and impoverished conditions residing in Naples’ historic center.

Amongst the services offered are:

  1. Three clinics offering free specialist visits, distribution of medicines, medical supplies, visual aids, and dental prosthetics
  2. Foster care and healthcare accompaniment which involves taking charge of the person, as well as resolving bureaucratic problems, accompaniment to NHS structures, support for family members and caregivers with a disabled child, and overall supervising families subject to socio-cultural and health risk
  3. Support residences for patients and family members of people who receive medical care in the Naples area, as well as those who live outside the city
Matthew’s House

Since 2016, Pio Monte has supported the activities of the Casa di Matteo, a reception center based in Naples for orphaned children with serious malformations, tumors and pathologies requiring special care.

In 2018, Pio Monte granted an entire wing of the former Illiano Institute in Bacoli on free loan. The Bacoli headquarters, in addition to welcoming sick children, has reserved a section to host the families of children who must undergo special therapies in nearby hospitals, and has provided an educational and recreational space for children and teenagers with an area dedicated to childhood disabilities.

With the “Opera 5” project, the structure is opened as a support residence to host families and children who are in need of long-term care and psychological support.
