This project, aimed at the collection of food, was strongly supported by the Med MDIO Country Representative for Greece, Paul Sampatakakis, who sent an open invitation to every Med MDIO member district in the whole area of the Mediterranean.
The Med MDIO Communication Coordinator Marco Gagliostro and the Club President Anna Napoli accepted the invitation and thanks to the participation and generosity of merchants in Palmi, Rotaract Club Palmi managed to gather 400kg of food supplies (approx. 650euros worth) which were donated to the City of Palms. The social services of the Italian City will distribute them to families in great need. The italian Club would like to thank all those people who worked for this project and help many poor families!
