Following the foundation of the Eta fund, the Board of Directors of the Company has chosen once again to support two foundations involved in the care of children and young people, with the aim of promoting and accelerating their collaboration in the field of disability care.
The “Gaetano e Mafalda Luce” Foundation was founded in 2003 with the aim of providing assistance to families and children suffering from autism.
The Foundation – through the Mafalda Luce Centre in Milan – promotes the development and the collaboration with other associations dedicated to therapy for people with intellectual disabilities and family support.
The Mafalda Luce Centre in Milan hosts the Semi-Residential Therapeutic and Rehabilitation Centre (CTRS), managed by the Renato Piatti Onlus Foundation. Since 2000, the Renato Piatti Foundation has taken care of approximately 450 people with intellectual disabilities, working through 16 centres in Lombardy that employ over 500 operators and volunteers.
FORMA Onlus is the Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital Foundation of Turin, a highly specialized paediatric centre of national importance, but also a reference centre for many children affected by various serious pathologies from other regions and foreign countries.
The Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital with the Obstetrician Gynecological Hospital S.Anna and the annexed University Clinics is the reference point for the metropolitan population of Turin, regional and national and is considered the largest maternal-infant centre in Europe.
The Foundation was born in 2005 bny the desire of a group of families to help the Hospital, in order to make it more child friendly.
For a period of 5 years from the Start of Operations, the Fund donates a percentage of the Total Amount Subscribed to the Gaetano e Mafalda Foundation in Milan and the Forma Onlus Foundation in Turin.
