Global Humanitaria Italy Onlus is an international, non-party, laic and independent association which pursues charitable purposes in Southern countries and Italy. Founded in 1999 in Barcelona and present in Milan since 2003, Global Humanitaria expanded to Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala, Colombia, India, Cambodia and the Ivory Coast to improve the living conditions of children and their families through distance adoption.
Thanks to the work of the association, each child has the opportunity to eat, be cared for, study and live peacefully together with their loved ones. Giordania Global Humanitaria supports a campaign of humanitarian aid to help Syrian war refugees, especially children, by collaborating with the Bader Rehabilitation medical center in Amman. They provide board and lodging, medical care, orthopedic implants, as well as an educational program, and psychological and emotional recovery to victims.
In 2015, Global Humanitaria started a project in Italy called "Psychological violence kills. Stop it now!" with the aim of offering psychological and legal support to victims of psychological violence in all its shapes (bullying in schools, bullying at work, manipulative behavior in private relationships).
