Fabriano, 24 March 2020 - "We received the appeal of the President of the Marche Region, Luca Ceriscioli, for the project of the hundred new intensive care beds for Ancona. We immediately allocated 100,000 euros. Emergency must be dealt with fast decisions". The President of Carifac Foundation of Fabriano, Marco Ottaviani, called an emergency meeting of the board of directors, using new technologies in order to respect the social distancing in act in Italy, in order to approve the allocation of 100 thousand euros in favour of the field hospital that the Governor of the Marche Region is going to build after having found the appropriate site to address the Coronavirus emergency.
"We have doubled our efforts: 100,000 euros for the local healthcare and 100,000 euro for the new emergency regional hospital. These donations stand alongside the fundraising campaign that we launched last Sunday, 22 March, in synergy with Ariston Thermo Group, with Francesco Merloni, the President of the Foundation Aristide Merloni, and in partnership with Radio Gold Fabriano, in favour of the hospital Engles Profili of Fabriano, Emergency Covid-19. We are already receiving many donations with bank transfer payable to Fondazione Carifac on IBAN IT29K 03069 21103 0003518 10000 indicating as reason for the payment "COVID Emergency Donation". The funds will be used for the purchase of ventilation units for the intensive care and other ventilatory support systems, sanitation devices for premises and ambulances and personal protective equipment. All requests received from General Managers, doctors, health-care workers and volunteers who are on the field", states the president of Carifac Foundation Fabriano.
These are the two initiatives that deal in synergy with the coronavirus emergency in the Marche Region and in the territory where the Foundation operates. "On one hand we follow the appeal of President Ceriscioli in favour of all the people of the Marche Region. Healthcare has no administrative boundaries! On the other hand, with the fundraising campaign that is actively involving all the citizens of Fabriano and not only, we will contribute to address the criticality highlighted by those who are well operating in the Engles Profili in this phase of strong emergency. We are proud of all those who promptly donated and of those who will do the same in the coming days. The Foundation will provide an accounting on donations, purchases and direct payments made, starting immediately in the next few days. Fabriano at the forefront #istayathome #lovedones".< Back
