“The biggest challenge is to ensure that Santa Casa continues to provide the best care, especially to the most unprotected and disadvantaged,” said the minister, noting that the composition of the rest of the Council will be announced shortly and leaving a “message of confidence to all those who build Santa Casa day by day.”
