In 2016 Varvel SpA is working alongside parents of children suffering from tumors in Sant’Orsola Hospital Bologna, by supporting the charity AGEOP RICERCA, Parents’ Association regarding Hematological Oncological Pediatrics.
This year Varvel SpA, bolognese company specialized in power trasmission, is offering an important contribution to the charity AGEOP RICERCA, Parents’ Association regarding Hematological Oncological Pediatrics. A tumor is one of the most serious and difficult experiences which can happen in life, and it is even harder when children are involved. The children affected and their families go through moments of extreme despair and often they are far from those who could give them comfort. Since 1982 AGEOP RICERCA has been committed to ensuring these people are not left alone and keeping alive the belief that it is possible to construct a future free from illness.
The association, which is based at the Lalla Seràgnoli Children’s Cancer Ward at Sant’Orsola Malpighi Hospital in Bologna, provides children and their families with three welcoming houses, a specialist psychologist, economic and human support. In addition it promotes research, in a concrete way, providing contracts for doctors and researchers at the Bologna study centre and organizing workshops to involve children in creative and therapeutic activities.
Varvel, a socially responsible company has been supporting charities such as Unicef, ANT and Doctors Without Borders for years, is making a donation to this association thanks to the indication of its workforce, actively involved in making these important choices for the company.
“For many years we have been selecting associations and initiatives to donate to, – affirms Francesco Berselli President of Varvel SpA – and this year we have decided to ask all the workers in our team to advise us, because it is thanks to them that we are able to afford the donations to support these initiatives”.
“We are happy to be able to give our support – confirms Mauro Cominoli, Managing Director of Varvel SpA – to an association like AGEOP. With our commitment we hope to contribute to making a difference and we would like to think that an increasing number of people, companies and institutions will decide to do the same, to bring about a better future for everyone.”
