Conference “Open Hospitals in Syria: after the first phase, the appeal is renewed”

 

On 31st May 2019, the Italian Embassy to the Holy See hosted the conference “Open Hospitals in Syria: after the first phase, the appeal is renewed”, to remember the commitment of AVSI and its donors (including the CEI through the 8X1000, Fondazione Gemelli and Fondazione Terzo Pilastro) to support the project by contributing to the material and moral support of the Syrians, affected by more than eight years of war.
The event was also an opportunity to recall data on health facilities and care provided by AVSI until today and to express the hope that 50,000 health benefits can be provided by 2020.
Speeches by Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, President of the CEI, the Ambassador of Hungary to the Holy See, Eduard Habsburg, Giovanni Raimondi, President of Terzo Pilastro Internazionale Foundation, Giampaolo Silvestri, General Secretary of AVSI Foundation and Cardianl Zanari, the Apostolic Nuncio to Syria, followed over during the event.
The meeting was moderated by the TG1 foreign affairs reporter, Maria Gianniti.
