A charity event to raise funds for Lacor Hospital in Uganda

On Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Milan Triennale, an exclusive evening was held in favor of Lacor Hospital (Uganda) through the initiative of the Piero and Lucille Corti Foundation.

Avion Company had the honor and pleasure to take part in this precious moment of meeting among all the friends who have been supporting for years the activities coordinated by Dominique Corti, doctor and president of the Corti Foundation.


Theme of the evening “Women at the Center”

During the evening, video and testimonies contributed to recounting the extraordinary work of doctors Piero and Lucille Corti in one of the poorest countries in Africa: when it was built, Lacor Hospital had 40 beds; today, however, it is an efficient hospital with nearly 600 beds and about 700 employees, all Ugandans.

Also shown was the graphic novel “Lucille of the Acholi” published by Il Castoro, which tells the life of Lucille Teasdale, mother of Dominique Corti, through beautiful illustrations.

Health, education and advancement are still possible in Uganda today thanks to Lacor Hospital and the tireless work of Dominique’s team.

That’s why in Avion Company we feel so strongly about supporting the excellent Corti Foundation.
