Covid-19 Health Emergency
In 2020 we carried out an online fundraiser through Catawiki for the Tuscan Health System, in particular for the enhancement of access points to hospitals.
Thanks to this initiative, around 14.000 euro were donated.

In these years we have supported Emergency in many important projects such as:
- Support to the Mayo Pediatric Center in Sudan
In 2005 EMERGENCY opened the Pediatric Center in the Mayo refugee camp, a few kilometers from the capital Khartoum, to offer free treatment to children up to 14 years of age. In the same year, EMERGENCY started building a Regional Heart Surgery Center in Khartoum. The need for cardiac surgery is urgent in the region and rheumatic disease remains a leading cause of death, despite being predictable and easily treatable. Area Performance contributes to the costs necessary to maintain the field.
- Support to the Entebbe Pediatric Surgery Center
Opened in April 2021, the Pediatric Surgery Center in Entebbe offers free pediatric surgical care in a country where more than half of the population is under 15 – there are 20 million children or adolescents in Uganda – and the infant mortality rate under 5 is 43 deaths out of 1000 births.
- Support for humanitarian programs supported by Emergency
From 1994 to today we have worked in 20 countries
treating over 12 million people. Without discrimination.
We are active in Afghanistan, Iraq, Italy, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Uganda, where we offer free and quality care in our hospitals, first aid posts, health centres, pediatric centres, rehabilitation centres, maternity centres, centers of excellence clinics, mobile clinics. We are in Eritrea, to support the activities of the Orotta Medical Surgical National Referral Hospital cardiology clinic in Asmara. We are also in the Central Mediterranean, with our ship, Life Support, for search and rescue (SAR) missions. field maintenance.
The journal of pediatrics of Lucca
The collaboration with the pediatric department of Lucca has made it possible to create a path dedicated to “informed awareness”, already started between 2004 and 2007 with the Gugo and Guga books of the Genovese Studio. A very current theme in the modern clinic and even more particular given the small age of the public to which the department is dedicated.
Thus was born the idea of creating educational comics to be distributed for free in the department, supported by the International School of Comics.

“The Van for Peace” Project
We support the S. Egidio Community with the financial support for “The Peace Bus”. A project linked to poverty support and children’s initiatives that the Lucca section engaged in volunteering has been pursuing for many years.
Support for Dynamo Camp
Dynamo Camp is the first Recreational Therapy Camp in Italy, free of charge for children from 7 to 17 years with serious and chronic diseases in therapy or in the post-hospitalization period. The Omo Dynamo is located in Limestre in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, in a splendid WWF-affiliated oasis, where children have the opportunity to spend a period of fun and carefree experiencing numerous activities in contact with nature and animals, in a protected environment where maximum safety is always guaranteed by excellent medical assistance and constant supervision by qualified personnel. Area Performance contributed to the activities of Dynamo Camp through the Dynamo Art Factory program.
