Emergency Christmas temporary shops in Italy for a good cause. Today: Naples' Spazio Natale Emergency shop opening

If you’re in Italy for a quick trip or pre-Christmas holidays voyage, then you’ve chosen the right time because it’s that time of the year when Emergency, the Italian no-profit NGO organization, opens its Christmas temporary shops.
Today, 28th November, the “Spazio Natale Emergency” starts its activity in Naples, directly in the city center, in via Santa Brigida 65/66.
The shop will be active till 24th December. The inauguration event is going to take place at 5:30 pm and there will be music and comic actors.

These Christmas temporary shops are scattered along the Italian peninsula and are a place where doing gifts becomes a good action: all proceeds from sales go to support Emergency operations in Italy, where the NGO provides care and health assistance for migrants.Emergency not only takes care of civilian victims of war in the poorest and troubled countries in the world (such as Iraq, Sudan and Afghanistan), but also work in Palermo with his clinic and in other 6 Italian cities with mobile units (Marghera, Polistena, Castel Volturno, Naples, Bologna and Milan).
Among the gifts you can find these shops, you’ll find handcrafted products from countries where Emergency works (Afghan embroideries, colourful patchwork textiles from Sierra Leone, batik fabrics, wooden accessories and crafts), books, toys, design pieces, Emergency gadgets, wines/drinks, traditional foods and desserts.
