we are pleased to be able to inform you that again this year our foundation MEDACTA FOR LIFE will be one of the patrons of the Concert for Children, a charity event in our territory.
The artist who will be performing this year is LOREDANA BERTE’. The concert will be staged on SATURDAY 18 SEPTEMBER at 21:00 AT THE PALAZZETTO FEVI DI LOCARNO.
The profits from the evening will be donated in full to the Associazione Ticinese Famiglie Affidatarie (ATFA), the only association that has been involved in foster care in Ticino since 1981, with the task of finding, training and supporting foster families.
Foster families provide the minor with a precious opportunity to grow up and, by placing him/her in a stable family environment, he/she can find new emotional reference points that help him/her build a serene and balanced personality. Living in a family is a fundamental right of all children who, in order to grow, need to be loved and educated. Foster families are a help, a support, for those families in temporary difficulty, for those children who are unable to live with their original family. Unfortunately, there are not enough foster families to cover the needs in Ticino.
For those who would like to learn more about this topic, the organisation will be present at the event with an information stand on child protection and prevention services in Ticino. ATFA Website.
