Milan, May 22, 2020 – Fondazione Milan continues to support the most vulnerable people who are facing the Covid-19 emergency. The Rossoneri Onlus has decided to back up the project “Coronavirus Prevention Plan” by Alice for Children in Kenya. Fourteen years ago, the NGO built and, since then manages, two primary schools that house 2,000 kids from Korogocho and Dandora, two of the most populated slums in Nairobi.
Among the 2020 projects, Fondazione Milan had already decided to support one of the activities powered by Alice for Children dedicated to social inclusion through sport and has now chosen to focus on the Prevention Plan becoming main donor of an initiative that today is even more necessary to tackle the Covid-19 emergency.
The Secretary General of Fondazione Milan, Rocco Giorgianni said: “This initiative is an aid to the fight against Covid-19 emergency in Nairobi’s slums, which we are very aware of at Fondazione Milan as it is some time now that we’re collaborating with Alice for Children. There is the risk of a massacre if the virus were to explode in an environment where people live crammed both outside and inside few square metres homes without toilets and who are led to hunger by the unemployment as a result of the lockdown. So, we decided to join the Coronavirus Prevention Plan, a concrete way to help people also in those Countries where the emergency is even stronger because it is linked to poverty.“
