ITALIA WE ARE WITH YOU- THE PROJECT
Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, thanks to extraordinary contributions made by its members, is channelling 3 million euros into “Italia, we are with you ”, a major solidarity project created by the Associates of CNMI and open to all Brands and Associations of the Fashion Industry.
This will enable the special Commissioner for the emergency and the Civil Protection Authority to donate ventilators and other required equipment, like medical surgical masks, testing reagents and protective clothing to meet the growing requirements of the country’s healthcare system, with which Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana is in constant touch. The medical equipment will be destined to all the hospitals in need, starting from the temporary hospital in the former Fiera Milano area serving as a reanimation centre for Lombardy and the rest of Italy. Each member of CNMI will contribute to the project by donating to the Civil Protection Authority an amount not lower than their the annual membership fee, the non-associated brands will donate an equivalent amount, while the Associations will donate what the amount they raised.
Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and Chic Investment Group, CNMI’s Chinese partner, with the support of Ernst & Young’s China and Italy international teams directly facilitated the cooperation between the Italian Civil Protection Authority and the SINOPHARM (China’s largest medical group) for medical and technical supplies arriving in Italy from China.
Much more material will arrive from China and will be allocated by CNMI to Milan’s city administration, which will distribute them as necessary in co-ordination with the Civil Protection Authority.
The China National Textile & Apparel Council, the China Fashion Association with its member Shandong Sunbird Garment Limited Company, the Shanghai Fashion Week, LZY Shuzhou China, the Shanghai International Fashion Federation and the Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in Milan, donated a high number of masks and medical equipment for Italy.
CNMI will also receive 10 ventilators, donated by Xi’an Sino-Italian Fashion Town and Nanjing Lishui Sino-Italian Innovation Town, which will be delivered from Shanghai.
In cooperation with the Italy-China Fashion&Creative Council and the support of Jing’An’s government and Futian District, Chinese business players of Shanghai, Shenzhen and Nanchino, will be involved in order to raise donations and seek medical equipment on the Chinese territory.
For this reason, the role of the Institutions , with whom we are in continuous contact, is very important. We thank for all the effort of the Government, the Parliament, Lombardys’ administration and the Municipality of Milan for handling this emergency.
Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana would like to express its closeness to all the people affected by this terrible emergency and its deep gratitude to all the doctors and hospital personnel for their fundamental and tireless work, that inspired us in the planning of our initiative.
