Who we are

AVSIa non-profit organization founded in 1972, implements development cooperation projects and humanitarian aid in 40 countries, including Italy.

From the HelpUkraine Hub to the AVSI for community centre: our history

A few weeks after the beginning of the war in Ukraine, AVSI mobilized to help people in Ukraine, at the border, and in Italy. In Italy, the very first initiative to assist those fleeing the war in Ukraine was the establishment of an information and coordination point. This centre aimed to centralize support services for Ukrainian refugees and connect those who offer help with those in need of it. Then, this initiative found a home in a space in Milan provided on free granting by UniCredit Bank. On May 16th, the Help Ukraine HUB was inaugurated at Viale Monza 79, and it now serves as the headquarters for AVSI for community activities.

The project partners

AVSI for community is a multi-service centre in a space given on free granting by UniCredit Bank.
