New Edition of "Il cuore di Firenze", world of rescue protagonist: Misericordie and Mariani Fratelli with Ukrainian minors
On September 13th, in Piazza Santissima Annunziata, the event “Il cuore di Firenze” (The heart of Florence) is back, this year dedicated to the help of Ukrainian boys
More than 1100 people took part in the dinner on 13 September in Florence’s square and even more those who participated with donations.
The Florentine solidarity project wanted to support, with a fundraiser, the project of reception, care and integration of Ukrainian minors hosted by the Institute of the Innocents
In support of this praiseworthy and supportive initiative, also this year, present the world of rescue and ambulances.
In particular, to have given a concrete contribution – as well as last year – is Mariani Fratelli, the company of fitters oldest in Italy, tradition and history of the ambulance
The institutional network that created the project consists of the ancient Florentine charities.
The archconfraternity of Mercy of Florence, Montedomini, Fondazione Santa Maria Nuova ONLUS and the Institute of the Innocents on all.
The event is organized thanks to the collaboration between the Arciconfraternita della Misericordia of Florence and the Montedomini Foundation.
Arriving from Kiev in search of a new life, the Ukrainian boys, frightened by the happened, were rescued from the bombs and transferred first to Warsaw and then to Florence.
Thanks to the association Save the Children and the CIR, the Institute of Santissima Annunziata Square rescued and welcomed Ukrainian minors
The smallest of them is 3 years old, while the largest 17.
“Il cuore di Firenze” (The heart of Florence) is a solidarity project coordinated by Claude Benassai that every year organizes events and initiatives to achieve important goals related to social welfare and health protection.
The project involves all citizens and the social fabric of Florence and brings with it the intent to involve young people to spread in the new generations that feeling of solidarity that has been rooted in Florence for centuries.
“Il cuore di Firenze” is therefore an opportunity for cooperation between the Brotherhoods that we hope will lead to bring closer the most authentic spirit of solidarity that they promote
