MARLENE® FOR AFRICA
400 packs of Marlene® apples donated to Teriamik, a non-profit organisation in Bari.
From South Tyrol to Puglia: a charitable gesture. A whole pallet of Marlene® apples offered as a contribution by the VOG Consortium to the non profit association Teriamik in Bari, which for years has carried out aid projects in Africa and Albania.
The charitable event involving Marlene® took place on Sunday 21 December 2014 in the parish of San Giuseppe Moscati, in the town of Triggiano, near Bari, with the help of the Paglionico company.
At the local Christmas Market, Teriamik volunteers sold the 400 Christmas packs of Marlene® apples donated by the VOG Consortium. The takings, amounting to €1,000, will be used to support solidarity projects being run by Teriamok in Africa, particularly in Burkina Faso.
On 26 December, leading figures from the association left for the city of Bobo Diulasso, where the funds raised will be personally consigned to Teriamik's local representatives, engaged in building a mental health centre in the village of Koumi.
