Charity Potatoes Distribution

30/05/2020

Padova, IT

Here we present you an important event that has affected very closely an area that in recent months has become famous throughout Italy and perhaps in the world.  In Vo Euganeo there was the first death of Covid19 in Italy and was, together with Codogno, the first red area in Italy with checkpoints at every border.  The main activity of this event was to distribute potatoes to the citizens of Vo. But, why potatoes? Easly, because they are one of the poorest and simplest foods, as It's simple but essential using a mask to safeguard lives. The event was organized in collaboration with the Veneto Imbruttito, the Protezione Civile of Borgo Veneto and the Croce Bianca of Grisignano. For the occasion, since it was red zone, we were able to invite only 1 Erasmus with us.

CAREoke is an activity where international students are invited to donate items for one of the city's charity institutions. The goal of this edition was to gather items such as long-lasting food, school supplies or hygiene items to donate to Colégio de São Caetano, an institution that accomodates and supports children and young people in danger, ensuring their basic needs are taken care of (such as their education and well-being).

Donations Collection for 'Refuweegee' with ESN UofG

11/12/2019 - 20/12/2019

Glasgow, GB

Students who would be finishing their exchange or who would like to clear out their room were invited to donate clothes, books, kitchenware and other useful items they no longer needed to a local charity, 'Refuweegee'. Refuweegee welcome refugees to Glasgow by providing them with a welcome pack, which contains donated items they may need to feel at home in the city. The students were invited to write a small "Letter from a Local" - a postcard which would be included in the welcome pack, to welcome the new arrivals with a small message, for example, some advice on the best parks to visit. The goal of the activity was to raise awareness of how we can help others in society in a small way, and to inform students more about the work which people in Glasgow are doing to welcome refugees, and integrate them into life here. The collection also aimed to raise awareness of environmental sustainability - instead of creating waste by throwing our old items away, we can recycle them by giving them to someone who will use them!
