Part of the building of the European Parliament will be available to homeless people and the most vulnerable in society, during this serious health emergency — President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, said in a video message.
“We want to be close to those who suffer, to those who work tirelessly in our hospitals, to the city and people of Brussels, as well as those of Strasbourg and Luxembourg, who welcome us and who need our help today. Europe’s strength is in its ability to act in solidarity, Sassoli said.
“We decided to make our building available to welcome the most vulnerable homeless people in this serious health emergency,” he said. “In addition, our kitchens will make more than 1,000 meals a day to be distributed to those in need, as well as to health workers to help them do their jobs”
