FONDAZIONE MEDITERRANEO: HUMANITARIAN MISSION TO ODESSA

The Fondazione Mediterraneo convened the International Executive Committee in Naples to deliberate on the humanitarian mission to Odessa, coordinated by Senator Giuseppe Lumia, President of the "Voluntary work and human rights" Commission.
The choice is in line with the mission of the Foundation, which was set up after the fall of the Berlin Wall precisely to give "action" to peace with initiatives of solidarity to the countries that are victims of war, such as the former Yugoslavia.
During the presentation conference - in connection with the city of Odessa and the diplomatic counsellor Attilio Malliani - the current initiatives in favour of the city and the whole Ukraine were illustrated.
President Michele Capasso, Senator Giuseppe Lumia and the director of the Museum of Peace Pia Molinari illustrated the executive programme in detail.
Senator Lumia detailed the recent mission to Odessa, emphasising, among other things, how the Ukrainian people are today experiencing unspeakable suffering and how the war is quickly destroying the life of an entire community.
Death, hunger, humiliation, violence, denial of the most basic rights are peeping out of the daily lives of all generations of all social conditions, of a reality located just a stone's throw away from the heart of Europe.
"It is one of those damned wars - Lumia says - that marks a watershed between a before and an after. Will we be able to understand the inestimable value of Peace from this dramatic experience as well? Will we be able to guide a rethinking and a redesign of relations between peoples and of the institutional context, which is called to global governance? Nothing can be taken for granted. Awareness and planning must be cultivated and shared through the most direct participation possible in the tragedies and hopes of refugees and of those who have chosen to remain, or are forced to remain, in Ukrainian cities, many of which have been devastated by bombing.
For years, the Fondazione Mediterraneo has been investigating the difficulties of advancing a governance of globalisation that is appropriate to the new challenges of our times.
A globalisation that lacks a "relational" governance, capable of making cultural, religious, economic and political diversities a resource for dialogue and integration in line with the memory marked by wars and the hopes for fraternity rising from the most disparate corners of humanity.
The Fondazione Mediterraneo has therefore promoted the project idea of a growth path starting from the United States of Europe, the United States of Africa, the United States of Latin America, the United States of South-East Asia and so on towards the goal of the United States of the World. It is an idea-project cultivated through a thousand experiences and meetings, even at the highest level, in the wonderful headquarters of the Foundation in Naples".
Attilio Malliani, Diplomatic Counsellor in Odessa, in his speech outlined the seriousness of the situation and thanked the Foundation for its contribution and recognition of the city and the entire country.
