NRDC - ITA International and Charity Day 2023

Sat 16 Sept – Milan.The annual International and Charity Day and newcomer’s family orientation day of the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Italy (NRDC-ITA) took place at the Ugo Mara barracks, Solbiate Olona (VA).

Now in its eighteenth edition, this year’s event saw representatives of the 20 countries that make up NRDC-ITA gather with their friends and families to celebrate their respective cultures and traditions and donate to charity.

Approximately 2.000 soldiers based at the nearby Ugo Mara barracks gathered also to raise money for the non-profit organization Progetti Fantasia of Busto Arsizio which helps and supports children and young people with autism.

The event saw various national stands, offering characteristically national food and drink, as well as cultural activities of the 20 member countries of the NRDC-ITA.

This day underlined the commitment of NRDC-ITA men and women to maintaining strong relationships with the local community. Whilst primarily focused on the maintenance of international security through collective defence, they are equally adept at supporting local worthy causes too.
