INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY

Volunteer work represents my contribution to the diffusion and accessibility of the best practise even in the absence of developed Health Systems.

Since1999, through the institution of a charity fund, I have been able to promote and support several projects which aimed at reducing such developmental divide.
