10th November - NRDC-ITA Women's International Club keeps the spotlight on Amatrice
Solbiate Olona (VA), 10th November 2016. Three months after the August earthquake hit central Italy, NRDC-ITA Women’s International Club (NIWIC) has organized an “Amatriciana Day” at Ugo Mara barracks.
The International Staff serving at NRDC-ITA had a taste of “Amatriciana bucatini” donating part of the income and part of NIWIC funds to the Italian Civil Protection Department.
“We decided to organize this charity event to raise money for the earthquake victims in central Italy, in particular the town of Amatrice and its surroundings. It is important now to keep the spotlight on the need for mutual aid and support, which are among the main institutional goals of our club. – said Mrs Elisa Imbergamo, NIWIC’s member – We deeply feel the needs of the evacuated people, above all now that winter is coming.”
NIWIC is a recognised voluntary membership association within the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Italy Morale & Welfare programme. Every spouse or partner of a member serving in this HQ can participate in our activities. NIWIC routinely organizes several activities and multinational events in order to bring together the various nationalities involved in NRDC-ITA by fostering good relationships and mutual understanding. Examples are fund-raisers for charitable purposes, Italian conversational classes, a Christmas Fair each year, International Coffee, cultural trips, cookery demonstrations, visits to art galleries, museums, villas, gardens, local markets and the like.
