In order to cope with the clear structural limits, the following actions have been launched: - donation of instruments for haematological diagnosis; - training and hospitality for 3 doctors from Serbia in health laboratories in Monfalcone; - donation of medical equipment. The Project of Collaboration with Serbia, which began in 2003, has allowed: I. Donation of laboratory equipment (haematology) II. Training of personnel from Serbia in Italy III. Creation of a commercial network in collaboration with Italian companies IV. Donation of reagents for the equipment donated The programme continued in 2004 with: V.

The project will broaden activities of the headquarters, setting up a new dental service open to all children of the municipality of Kragujevac, also able to work with children with Down's syndrome. For this purpose, instrumentation will be acquired for two full dental studios, aimed first of all at providing assistance to children in care or handicapped, as well as young cancer patients. The equipment will be given for free use, and may not be used for other purposes such as for self-employment. Once it is installed, the new surgeries will set up updating courses for the 6 dentists and 10 dental nurses at the headquarters, according to new WHO guidelines on children's dentistry. These courses will be run by COI volunteers. Under the second phase of the project, as well as the opening of new health services to all citizens, a dental programme will be launched for children with Down's syndrome. Goals: • Contribute toof improving the living conditions of Concordia, the population of Kragujevac, social development through actions of health and health education The presence the Diocese Caritas (charity) of Pordenone L.R. encouraging 19/2000 (Regional Law) € 20.500,00 2005 in Serbia dates back to the early months of 2001, the year when the twinning project began with the Caritas of Valjevo. The area of the city of Valjevo suffered intense bombing during 1999, since they were a number of war-related industries there. In 2001, a programme for homebased care was launched to provide assistance to those who were not independent, lived alone, had no access to social assistance, or where it was completely absent. This activity has gradually replaced the initial aid and is still in progress, giving assistance to a large number of people. In 2005, the project of Home-Care (Assistenza Domiciliar) was united with the aid programme module "Donne Sole" (Women Alone), whose goal is the permanent hiring of three young mothers as domestic helpers, in order to be able to give care to their children, and to allow the work of washing and ironing for assisted people. This activity is very important, since it allows support to be given to three young mothers for whom no other legal form of maintenance can be guaranteed. This module was launched towards the end of 2005, and will become fully operational in 2006, since the launch phase has been dedicated to obtaining the instruments needed for carrying out the wor The long-term goal of the module "DS", within three years, is establishment of a co-operative or other form of association to allow the three people to manage a laundry and cleaning shop.

The aim was partly to underline the barriers encountered and the discrimination met by disabled people, and to improve their lives. This gave the local democracy agency (ADL) the opportunity to include rights for disabled people among its activities. ADL has decided to take the initiative in this area in view of the discrimination against disabled adults and minors, including the obstacles they have to overcome every day in order to live and participate fully in society on the basis of shared respect for other citizens, as well as exclusion from work and education, and also through lack of health structures and adequate medical treatment. Disabled people encounter barriers when seeking and keeping work, but also in finding means of transport they are able to use, buildings and structures that are physically accessible, or getting access to education. These barriers all too often prevent the disabled from having a full role in society. However, one of the chief obstacles encountered by the disabled is the negative and disabling attitude of society itself. Project goals: - raise awareness among the disabled, to provide protection against discrimination and to guarantee full and fair recognition of constitutional rights, - raise publicarises awareness about the forms of to disability types of discrimination experienced, The project from the need tovarious give assistance victimsand (women, L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) € 81.449,36 2002 2006 children, displaced persons, refugees) of the war of the former Federal Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia, in the city of Prjiedor, in north-west Bosnia Herzegovina. The project proposed falls into various phases (duration 2 years). The hygiene, health and care conditions will be improved for the weakest section of the population, victims of ethnic cleansing during the war that began in 1992. The aim is allow these people to determine their own lives and make choices, in future conditions of work through forms of local enterprise or co-operation. The co-operation project already launched in recent years will continue to pursue social and economic development of women, as those in most need but at the same time able to act as concrete human resources for launch and establishment of services aimed at improving health and care conditions of those who are least protected (the elderly, invalids, families with problems, etc.). The aim however, is not to operate sectorially, but to give aid to anyone in difficulty or suffering. In this way, the project launches and promotes concrete actions supporting human rights and a culture of peace. In particular, the project willa strengthen actions of collaboration associations to different ethnic groups. In previous action,€this networking encouraged by the project led to joint discussion meetings by Serbs and Muslims r The project aims to set up fully equipped dental surgery, and among then to various L.R. local 19/2000 (Regionalbelonging Law) 14.000,00 2005 2006 launch the practice for dental care required by children, young people, and adults of the Sacra Famiglia Centre and the Nazareth Centre. In December 2004, a dental chair was taken to Mostar, along with a full complement of dental equipment (second-hand but working), as well as other equipment needed for the practice, partly donated by the volunteer association “Insieme si può” (Together We Can) of Belluno. Later, in February 2005, the equipment was set up and installed by a specialist technician from Trieste. Goals: • Provide dental health at the handicapped rehabilitation Sacra Famiglia Centre and the Nazareth Centre of the Caritas (charity) of Mostar • Set up a dental practice at the Sacra Famiglia Centre • Provide dental treatment for those in care at the Sacra Famiglia Centre and the Nazareth Centre • Train local staff (dental doctors, dental technicians, dental hygienist and dental equipment technician) to run the dental practice and provide continuity and follow-up to those in care at the Sacra Famiglia Centre and the Nazareth Centre after our intervention is complete • Train operators (nurses, educators, and other specialist personnel) of the Sacra Famiglia Centre and Nazareth Centre on topics of dental hygiene and prevention of dental problems, especially for handicapped persons (whether physical or mental). • Through information campaigns covering the specific project, and in general the activities of collaboration between the Caritas of the Trieste diocese and that of Mostar, raise awareness in the local communities in Trieste and in Friuli Venezia Giulia ab L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) The project has strong social implications, in view of the desire to improve the very clear problem of inability to read and write of the Rom children (the Rom have many needs, including unemployment, intolerance of the Macedonian people). The Caritas, together with the humanitarian association IRHOM, intends to manage the activity of a social centre that has the goal of helping in pre-school and after-school education of Rom children. The main players are the Caritas of Gorizia, which has been operating in the Balkans for years, and the humanitarian association IHROM in Skopje, with which a protocol of collaboration has been signed. The main goal is to raise the level of instruction and education of the Rom children, through a continuous programme, thereby lowering the level of marginalisation and discrimination these populations are subject to. Interreg III-A € 21.312,32 2001 This concerns an action of prevention and fighting of alcohol addiction, L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) which is a very widespread disease in the Region of Iasi, an area to the north-east of the country, bordering Moldavia. The goal is to strengthen local health structures through information and training courses on topics related to alcohol addiction. Final goals are to strengthen local health structures through awarenessraising of 200 health and social operators, and build capacity for prevention and fighting alcohol addiction through activation of 10 selfhelp groups in the territory concerned. € 25.402,72 2001 Romania Programme for treating alcohol-related European School for problems Alcohology and Ecological Psychiatry The European School of Alcohology and Ecological Psychiatry is tackling L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) alcohol-related problems in the country, with the aim of improving a scenario of poor life-style and social and personal marginalisation. The following results have been obtained so far: - The constitution of a team of volunteers, both professional and otherwise, in the territory of Iasi, able to support people and families with problems of multiple addiction. - Establishment of a residential centre with 6 beds and a medical surgery. - Creation of a network of clubs for alcoholics undergoing treatment (Hudolin method), working in the territory and then an association of clubs for alcoholics undergoing treatment (ACAT), in part so that they can run independently, without discrimination by faith or ethnic group. - Creation of a family house for minors (homeless children) aimed at prevention of juvenile delinquency and alcohol addiction, and with a goal of finding employment and strengthening personal resources to guarantee a better future. € 15.000,00 2006 Palestine Collaboration with the Union of Palestinian Medical Relief Committees for basic socio-health interventions at Nablus The general goal is to improve the access by people in the Nablus region L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) and refugee camps, to free health and social services provided by Medical Relief. Salaam identifies and prepares (in collaboration with Assopace) the Italian volunteers who are able to spend one or more periods of more than 15 days in Nablus, working with Medical Relief. Each volunteer is asked to join the mobile clinic going out to the villages: the presence of an international team always eases border crossing, presence at refugee camp headquarters, and issues related to curfews. The project also aims to provide medical relief through a new mobile clinic vehicle (there are currently two). These are needed to extend and facilitate the preventive health service to villages and refugee camps in the Nablus region. € 56.250,00 2004 Romania South-East Europe Middle East Salaam Committee Bambini dell'Ulivo (Children of the Olive Tree) 2004 Transfrontaliero Adriatico (Adriatic cross-border) CVCS Volunteer Centre for Social Co-operation South-East Europe Aug-2006 2002 2006 Africa Algeria Optics laboratory Ass Pentalux The project concerns the socio-health context; the beneficiaries are the L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) people of Saharawi currently at the refugee camp in the south of Algeria. The project developed out of the need to give maximum coverage of a service to protect eyesight, as response to the high number of requests for day-centre check-ups, in particular by adults and the elderly; the project will also involve the complete rebuilding of a work area (found by the Saharawi people) that meets the project requirements, and the availability of all essential material. The problem of eyesight is severe in the population owing to the strong light of the location, the abundance of dust and sand brought in by strong desert winds, and the poor conditions of hygiene. € 13.500,00 2005 Middle East Palestine Youth Centre of Biddu: action to fight social problems and prevention of domestic violence ICS - Italian Consortium for Solidarity The project aims to provide concrete support to civilians of Palestine, L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) particularly the vulnerable young and adolescents, by strengthening the Juvenile Centre at Biddu and promoting activities to fight social exclusion and domestic violence. The project includes establishment at Biddu of an audiovisual laboratory for social communication, and a series of other specific activities (workshops, theatre performances, awareness-raising events) about domestic violence. The training and support to the local partner (the young people's association Dialogue Youth Forum) represents one of the central goals of the project, and will be pursued through constant presence alongside the proposer in carrying out the common activities, and also with information-gathering visits to groups and organisations in FVG working in the field of young people's groups. € 17.027,50 2005 Middle East Lebanon PROJECT (Youth): project to launch an integrated youth centre - Shabab Un Ponte per… Association "A Bridge for …" € 49.769,00 2005 Indian SubContinent India Bhopal Children's Home International Adoption Association L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) This project is a response to a series of requests advanced by the National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training - Assumoud. The basic idea is to provide equipped areas for young people from the fields, and where possible to organise leisure, cultural, sports activities, including opportunities for socialising and learning activities (with repetition of school lessons as necessary), thereby allowing these young people to organise themselves and improve their creative and relational abilities. L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) The Bhopal Children House project in the village of Samardha near Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh is to build a multifunctional structure in a severely deprived part of India. The building, on a large piece of land donated by the local authorities, has a horse-shoe shaped ground floor where we have created school structures for primary and middle-school children. The school education programme, which is completely free, also includes provision of text books, notebooks and other materials, free meals, as well as courses on hygiene and handling food and water in a territory that is still strongly compromised by methyl isocyanate. On the upper floor, specialist medical studios are being installed: orthopaedic, dental, gynaecological, as well as rooms with baby incubators and hospital centre for children.

The sports centre will be built on the hospital premises, with external entrance designed to break down barriers and allow the community into the hospital. The new centre will create spaces for communication, and offer opportunities for patients to work and express themselves, and finally generate exchange through sports and social activities that promote health in the widest sense. € 22.500,00 2005 2006 Latin America Mexico The time of Sobada: childbirth practice and knowledge in a Mayan village Association for EthnoAnthropological and Social Research (FVG areas) L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) € 16.895,00 2006 The project goal is improvement in maternal health and assistance in childbirth. This is to be achieved through highly efficient communication between users and health operators, as well as improved knowledge about the various approaches to health in traditional medicine. The need to understand the practices involved and have sound knowledge about childbirth - apparently remote from a biomedical approach - explains the rationale behind the research, as a source of knowledge that is practical and operational, not theoretical. The research results then constitute a tool for producing material for health education and training. Goals: - Improve maternal health, in line with millennium goals for reproductive health. - Strengthen capacity to provide adequate service for reproductive health at all levels, improving the quality of services and increasing their use by promoting, in an intercultural perspective, improved knowledge and communication among health operators (biomedical and traditional) and women of childbearing age. To increase and extend women's access to the most effective interventions in reproductive health, empowering them in a general sense. - Encourage self-development of the community of Kaua (village in Mexico) and strengthen Mayan ethnic-cultural identity in a context of change due to spread of western models/lifestyles, promoting the preservation, transmission and utilisation of the in Latin America Brazil Assisted Freedom Community Oikos Africa Ivory Coast The chains of freedom: local development, social enterprise and mental health at Bouakè Consortium of Social Cooperatives The project goals are introduction and trial at the Ezechiele Ramin L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) Centre of personally-tailored paths for social reintegration of 30 youngsters with criminal record (prison sentence) and/or other alternative measures, setting out from the needs and resources of these beneficiaries, families and local institutions in the quarters of Belem in San Paolo East. Social reintegration of these young people will be sought through active involvement of families and local communities, the reclaiming of self-confidence and right to citizenship, professional training and access to work. Personal pathways will be tailored through activation of various measures and through specific support provided by the project. The project is part of a three-year programme of integrated development L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) for generating and strengthening pilot experience in social enterprise. General goal: establish an integrated programme of local development, through new plans of social enterprise in the sectors of farming, craftsmanship, commerce, to allow social and employment re-integration of people with mental disabilities, through promotion of training courses in the health, economic and protection of human rights sectors.

The project aims to meet the needs of two settlements in the Jujuy area. These have severe lack of health structures and compromised environments, which put the residents at particular risk from chronic illnesses that often lead to death. To alleviate this suffering, material will be provided for rehabilitating the housing area, and two health centres will be launched, along with the technical assistance of Italian doctors.

To build on and strengthen the activity of this local Association, the project will work in 5 areas: 1. development of a local partnership with the function of awarenessraising and promotion of a culture of acceptance, welcome and rehabilitation of those suffering from mental illness; 2. construction of housing for the mentally ill; 3. technological and economic support for development of concrete local social enterprise that can allow inclusion on social and employment levels of those with mental illness; 4. specific training in health, and supporting development of forms of social enterprise; 5. expansion of the project at regional, national and international level. € 27.692,00 2004 2005 CVCS - Volunteer Centre for Co-operation for Development The project aims to contribute to improving the beneficiaries' quality of L.R. 19/2000 (Regional Law) life, providing the material means and technical assistance needed in education and training, collaborating with official local institutions, and in the sector of agro-animal husbandry. The beneficiaries of the action will be 50 children identified by the local authorities, and 30 problem youngsters, known to the DEN-KO Association.
