Italian Solidarity in Qingdao
Carraro China among the promoters of a major humanitarian project
It all started at a dinner, in Spring 2010, where three Italian managers living in Qingdao decided it was time to give something in return to the country and the city that were hosting them for their business. After all the opportunities received, the moment had come to "leave a tangible sign of our presence, showing our gratitude".
From here, Enrico Zanella, Marco Pardini and Silvio Brignone, decided to promote a social solidarity action, in a proactive and concrete way, involving in such spirit the Italian companies present in Qingdao. The Solidarietà Italiana Qingdao association was created that way.
Carraro Qingdao has surely been an active part of this activity since the beginning, namely being one of the main supporters of the project for the orphanage for the handicapped children of the city and taking part in the organizing committee of the solidarity initiatives.
In these last two years the association did a lot, finalizing a number of projects, for instance the concert "Music of the Heart" and some charity auctions - collecting funds for the purchase of a bus for children.
Next important appointment is scheduled at the end of August, with the 3-day concert kermess "Music of the Heart".
