Food for others
La forza e il sorriso Onlus is a typical example of cure and care
for those wanting to feel good about themselves and with others.
It is the Italian version of the “Look Good…Feel Better” project that was born in the USA in 1989.
It started in Italy in 2006 thanks to the support of the Italian make-up industry.
It is aimed at all women undergoing cancer treatment who want to maintain their
femininity and regain a sense of well-being and self-esteem.
The overall objective is for women to “be able to smile at themselves
in the mirror and on the inside, too”.
