"Cattolica&Solidarietà": the gift of azaleas to Cattolica Members
At the end of the Assembly each Member was given an azalea plant: a present for the participants and a symbol of the Company's attention to women and issues related to women's health.
A total of 1800 seedlings were purchased by the Cattolica Group and given to Members, the proceeds of which will be donated to ANDOS. A non-profit organisation, it was established in 1976 by Luisa Nemez, with the support of Prof. Piero Pietri, as a rehabilitation centre for women who have undergone mastectomies. The centre offers women whose breasts have been operated on more specific and attentive care, to help them overcome the many related traumas.
ANDOS is committed to raising women's awareness on the problems of breast conditions and on the existence of a considerable range of free assistance services for their Committees, also through communication that is gentle and not strictly linked to coarse medical terminology.
