– Preparation of meals with the contribution of victims if they benefit in joining into this activity;

– Laundry and maid;

– Transport to and from hospital, courts or police offices, law firms, or any other reasonable need;

– Protection of the victim from unnecessary intrusions, protecting their privacy, even with media;

– Consultancy directed to obtain compensation and reparation;

In 2018, in addition to the normal work, service and support, I-CARE supported Italian victims of terrorist attacks.
