We can ride, as a commitment: and it is no coincidence that it's called" Cycling for Armenia "project organized by the Director of Maxillofacial Surgery Hospital Pope John XXIII in Bergamo Antonino Cassisi that with Armenia, thanks a collaboration initiated by the association Rainbow, now has a direct line.
In fact, the name is also a representation of the "heart" of the project: health, is closely linked to sport, and the sport enters into solidarity for Armenia. In this case the cycling, referred Cassisi is a fond:
«We have the support of major Italian and world cycling champions: Nibali, Basso, Vanotti, Sagan, Pozzato, Kreuzinger, Roche, Gasparotto, and Bettini.
Each of these cyclists will be raffling off autographed, his personal bike racing, a contribution, essential, to raise funds for the project.»
«The project is about to start and we hope to have massive adhesion. The heart of the cyclists is immense and the purpose of this initiative is very ambitious - explains Cassisi -. The whole initiative, however, also has the support of the Armenian government and health care institutions in Yerevan: so much so that currently at work on the extension of the hospital's mom and Del child has already been identified the area where it will be built the department.
And in the meantime has been given a small room to start a series of sessions surgery to treat children: coming soon, and right from Bergamo, equipment and surgical instruments to improve the quality of the hospital, which is now very old and now has facilities in disuse.
Thanks to the allocation obtained by the Arcobaleno with the disposal of old equipment Riuniti you can count on better equipment, that there Yerevan, will be almost the ultimate in bioengineering. Not to mention that more recently an anonymous benefactor Bergamo wanted to donate an ultrasound for this hospital.»
The success of the project will be able to do more, much more. "The aim is to constitute a special Foundation - concludes Cassisi - because in this way the flow of aid will be continuous. So how will become stable, I hope so, even the formation of the Armenian colleagues: I will go there to work, always as a volunteer, but above all to convey knowledge, then why so colleagues can do yourself and treat many children without them out from their country».
