AVSI's response to the Ukraine emergency
AVSI immediately created a network with other subjects to be able to organize a welcome response to the most urgent and immediate needs. As usual, we opted for networking, trying to avoid dealing with the complexity of these phenomena alone, and on the contrary enhance each help offer by networking with other.Giampaolo Silvestri, AVSI secretary general at the conference “Beyond borders.
