The Pope's Gift to Ill-Housed


The Pope has donated 2,000,000 lire (about £1,000) to improve the condition of the people of Corato, near Bari, Italy, who have been living in wooden shacks since their houses collapsed 30 years ago due to subsoil erosion. The Italian Ministry of Public Works also recently allocated 15,000,000 lire (about £8,200).
