For the third consecutive year, AICODS “adopted” a room for one year at the Associazione Peter Pan Onlus, which hosts families of children with cancer in Rome. This was made possible by the contribution of all the Dames and Knights of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy.
In addition to this, thanks to the generous support of two Thai members of the Savoy Knightly Forces, it was possible to offer an additional room within the same facility in 2020.
The room, called “Il rifugio di Gianni e Michele” (Gianni and Michele’s refuge) hosted a family from Montenegro, the birthplace of H.M. Queen Elena, and is still occupying it because of the continuing treatment of a seven-year-old boy, who is being cared for at the haematology ward of the Bambino Gesù Hospital in Rome. Another room, called “Il colle del gigliotigrato” (the hill of the striped lily), hosted two Italian families from Apulia and Sicily. The children, aged five and six respectively, were treated in the oncology ward of the same hospital.
The Grand Chancellery of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, at the instigation of H.R.H. the Grand Master and H.R.H. Prince Emanuele Filiberto, has decided to renew the annual lease for 2021 and we hope that, thanks to your precious support, it will be possible to raise further funds to pay for a second room.
