With the coronavirus emergency still not over altogether, the Santa Marta Paediatric Dispensary in the heart of Vatican City began taking all the necessary precautions on June 3, to re-start its services for needy children and pregnant women.

"In a few days everything will be back to normal as before," said volunteers at the Dispensary. One of them, Valentina Giacometti, said, "The Dispensary must necessarily offer a sign of presence," adding they are close to those who are currently experiencing the greatest economic and social difficulties.

New mothers from all over the world come to Santa Marta Paediatric Dispensary, which is part of the activities of the Office of Papal Charities, the Holy See’s department charged with exercising charity to the poor in the name of the Pope.

In the past few months under lockdown, the Dispensary was providing assistance by phone. From now on, access to the services will be regulated in keeping with health protocols, especially physical distancing. Booking an appointment via telephone is needed to avoid many arriving together at the same time.

For Valentina, the biggest difficulty is not being able to hug the children. However, she said, they would learn to communicate with their eyes above the masks. Under the limitations, they will try to maintain the familiar warmth and playful atmosphere that have always marked the environment where specialist doctors follow mothers and children throughout their growth.
