Chronically poor in Milan diocese rises 400% in 10 yrs


Milan, November 20 - The number of poor who
chronically seek assistance from Catholic church charities in
the Milan diocese has quadrupled over the last decade, according
to a study released on Tuesday.
Continuing economic crisis drove 16,751 people in 2011 to
find help at centers of the Catholic charity Caritas Ambrosiana
across the territories of the Milan diocese, the organization's
11th Report on Poverty found.
The Milan diocese extends from Milan to cities beyond its
periphery, like Varese, Monza and Lecco.
Foreigners constituted 73.5% of those seeking help, the
report said. Three quarters of them were working age, and two
thirds were women.
The total number of poor seeking aid increased by 6% since
the first year of the crisis in 2008.
The ranks of the chronically poor, who lean on the Caritas
network for at least two years in a row, rose significantly, the
study noted.
