The generosity of the Sicilians has no limits and this is demonstrated by the enormous quantity of food and basic necessities collected at the Mediterranean Fair that should reach the reception centers set up for refugees, on the border with Ukraine.

What has been collected is now in pavilion 24 of the Mediterranean Fair, where the volunteers of the ROE, ERA, AssoFante of the Palermo Civil Protection work, with the precious contribution of many Voluntary Organizations and Third Sector Entities from all over Sicily.

Great commitment, an excellent result that now threatens to frustrate the efforts because there is no way to bring the goods from Palermo to Przemysl – Poland where the “Italian Village” has been set up.

“We risk wasting and losing what the Sicilians have donated and continue to donate for the population of Ukraine – say Valentina Chinnici, Massimo Giaconia and Michele Maraventano – because the truck that should make this trip costs € 2,500, a sum we do not have.
We therefore ask for a small economic contribution from those who can and want to do so to concretize solidarity for the people of Ukraine.
Certain that the heart of the Sicilians is great – add Chinnici, Giaconia and Maraventano – we also turn to the Mayor of the Metropolitan City of Palermo and the President of the Sicilian Region so that other premises are made available to contain all basic necessities, which are now arriving from all over Sicily, thinking of means of transport for their transfer to the first reception centers set up for refugees, which are located on the border with Ukraine “.
