Fundraising and Public Awareness for Casa di Kim
Interact Rome International leads and supports fundraising and public awareness initiatives in favor of Casa di Kim. From 1997 l’Associazione Kim Onlus (a.k.a. Casa di Kim) aims at offering shelter, medical treatment and all basic needs to children in Italy and overseas that are seriously ill and suffer from economic hardship and social exclusion. Patients at Casa di Kim frequently come from countries at war or without an appropriate health care system. Minors are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who stays during the time of the treatment together with the child at Casa di Kim. The Association aims at building public awareness about social inclusion, solidarity and service to others.
