Living on the fringes of society

Sitting in the ivory tower of our privileged situation, where our worries are about buying a superb car and having a good holiday, there are many citizens, who suffer the greatest violence that this society can inflict upon them: the INVISIBILITY that unfortunately is associated with a shortage of financial resources. Nowadays, we are spectators of a world, where we want to think that only a minority are on the verge of poverty and social exclusion; where drug addiction is only a problem in outlying neighbourhoods; where discrimination against the several differences that enrich this boring society are from the past; where greed is called ambition. However, that world is not a TV programme, but a reality that many charitable organizations, such as Cáritas, the Red Cross or Food Bank are seeing every day.
