Rome, May 5th, 2020 – “The fundraising I have decided to launch focuses on the needs of hospitals with fewer resources. So I took this decision, that is to help this hospital in Potenza, in order to meet the needs and requests made by the governors of Basilicata, by offering FFP2 masks that will help staff to cope with their daily tasks with greater safety for themselves and their families”. This was stated by H.R.H. Prince Charles of Bourbon Two Sicilies, on the occasion of the donation of € 15,000 to the hospital “San Carlo” from the Constantinian Order Charity Onlus.
“I hope that phase 2 of the pandemic will soon restore some normalcy for the inhabitants of this region, which has been too often forgotten by national news, and once this emergency phase is over, will leave an overall improvement in the functionality of the structure on the territory compared to citizens’ expectations, with the hope of being able to intervene again to meet the hospitals’ operational needs”, added Prince Charles.
A “big thank you ” was sent by Mr. Massimo Barresi, General Director of the Hospital San Carlo in Potenza, to the Constantinian Order: “This very important institution has a secular history dedicated to the needy people. The Order was able to provide us with 2,560 FFP2 masks, worth 15,000 euros, even during this difficult period. A great gesture and a demonstration of sensitivity we are truly grateful for”.
