HOUSING FOR THE CURE

It is a difficult moment for Bergamo and its hospitals, which are now in a critical condition.

Confindustria Bergamo, co-organiser of IVS, supports together with the newspaper L’Eco di Bergamo and the Diocese of Bergamo, the “Housing for the cure” project, to face the emergency.

“Housing for the cure” aims to create and channel a fundraising campaign to finance the needs of our hospitals. In particular, we want to find alternative solutions for dismissed patients who have to continue quarantine in protected places, thus helping not only the sick but also alleviating their families and the purchase of life-saving instruments.

For this reason a fundraising account has been opened in the name of “ASSOCIATION DIAKONIA ONLUS” with IBAN: IT53I0311111104000000002721 and reason for payment: EMERGENZA CORONAVIRUS – CBG to which Confindustria Bergamo has already donated €50,000.

We invite our IVS community to contribute with a donation and disseminating the initiative among their contacts. We appeal to your generosity.

It will be at your discretion to let us know your name after the donation, by writing to info@industrialvalvesummit.com

Dear Colleague,

we know how much our hospitals are in critical condition in these weeks. I therefore take the opportunity to this message to thank all the medical staff for the extraordinary work they are carrying out with passion despite the critical conditions in which they are operating. I anticipate, in this regard, an initiative of charities that Confindustria Bergamo is going to support.

The project is promoted by our association, the local newspaper “L’Eco di Bergamo” and the Diocese of Bergamo and aims to create and convey a fundraiser to fund the needs of our hospitals.

In particular, we will strive to find alternative solutions for inpatients who are discharged from hospitals and must continue quarantine in protected places, thus helping not only the sick but also alleviating the commitment of their families and to the purchase of life-saving equipment.

For this reason, a bank account has been opened with the “DIAKONIA ONLUS ASSOCIATION” with the following IBAN: “IT53I031111110400000000002721” and the reason: “CORONAVIRUS EMERGENZA – CBG”. Our association has already donated 50,000 euros.

Daily updates on the progress of the collection will be published on the newspaper  “L’Eco di Bergamo”  and on our website.

It will be at the discretion of donors whether to disclose their name or remain anonymous.

I invite you to contribute and spread the initiative among your contacts. It is a time of difficulty for our territory and for our families and I think it is our responsibility to contribute and support the initiative to face the emergency.

I therefore appeal to your generosity, which I am sure will prove to be beyond all expectations this time.

Stefano Scaglia
President of Confindustria Bergamo
