Sostegno alla Clinica di Alemtena in Etiopia
Da 25 anni Top Glass sostiene la Clinica gestita dalle Missioni della Consolata in Etiopia, più precisamente ad Alemtena per sostenere le attività mediche e di prevenzione.
Ogni anno facciamo un’importante donazione, utilizzando un budget che include anche i regali di Natale che avremmo fatto per i clienti e fornitori, per sostenere le attività mediche e di prevenzione per tutta la popolazione dei villaggi intorno alla Clinica.
Il nostro contributo aiuterà a sopperire le difficoltà di accesso ai servizi sanitari e a dare una maggiore fruibilità del diritto alla salute a tutti gli abitanti di Alemtena e dintorni, soprattutto per le persone affette da HIV.
Il programma comprende esami e servizi di laboratorio, medicinali, vaccinazioni, prevenzione della tubercolosi, terapie e prevenzione da virus HIV, programmi di distribuzione di cibo supplementare per bambini affetti da malnutrizione.

Pubblichiamo l’ultima lettera ricevuta dalla Missione con la descrizione delle attività svolte durante l’anno 2021:
Dear Mr. Alfonso and Family
Another year has pasted and we are preparing for celebrating the most beautiful mystery of our faith- Christmas, ones again. With all the pandemic consequences our lives change and we try to live as much as before with our usual life and activity..
We are truly grateful to you for sending us the financial assistance for the use of our Medium Clinic in Alemtena in 2021. Therefore, we were able to take care of the patients who need our care and help and the running cost of the Medium Clinic. With all the challenges of Covid 19 pandemic we try to find way to care for our people instead of the difficulties and economic problems including the increments of all the prices and salaries.
This year in respond for the needs of our patients, especially the HIV patients, we were distributing more food and medical treatment for the poor.
The aim was to keep the health condition of the beneficiaries strong and to avoid getting sick with all new variant of Covid. All over the world people are still dying because of this sickness and our country is not free from this problem, only our patients do not have the access to good health care in hospitals. Very often they are sentenced to dead because of lacking respiratory machines and proper medicines and vaccines.
Very important is the awareness of the pandemic so our staff is giving necessary education.
People are still ignorant about the consequences of new form of Covid, especially the one from the nearby villages.
We continue our routine preventive and curative services daily. We also continue treatment with alternative medicines. This year we had a lot of problem with finding medicines since no medicines were coming from abroad and need for treatment was very big, especially for poor people who cannot afford payment. I would like to write about our activities of past 11 months.
