Help to SI club Sondrio, Italy
Our partnership with SI club Sondrio has started by the visit of their club member Caroline during our regular meeting in March 2019, when Caroline introduced activities of their club. She is Czech, married to Italy, periodically coming to Prague. First contacts actually were realized already during summer 2018, when she met our President at that time, Jana Benešová. They both remained in contact.
Seven members of our club accepted in September 2019 invitation to come to their interesting town. During the visit there was officially signed Partnership Agreement between our clubs. The next common gathering was planned for Automn 2020 in Prague.
But in January 2020 horrible news of Coronavirus appeared from China. Italy became the first and the most affected European country. We received from Sondrio, region of Lombardy, desperate news from our friends. Guisi, president of SI club and simultaneously a medical doctor in a local hospital, announced that her department had to be closed as half of the doctors and 3 nurses have been infected with Coronavirus. Local SI club and management of the hospital and the town declared an official fundraiser to help the hospital. We thought to help with fundraising among us as well, which would helped them to buy necessary medical supplies. We sent amount of 1700 € already and hope it will help a little bit.
