Bianca Balti, guest at the charity gala dinner to inaugurate The Bridge of Love on June 13.
Starting June 14, the Dolce & Gabbana dress and Chopard necklace worn by the supermodel during the dinner will be available for purchase at LUISAVIAROMA.COM. Both pieces are donated by the designers in support of the cause.
All proceeds from the gala dinner and sale of the outfit will be donated to The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). In particular, the Lifeline Jordan project that provides direct economic assistance for families of Syrian refugees who have found asylum in Jordan.
Since the beginning of the war in Syria until now, 4.8 million people have left the country. Among those, more than 630,000 have sought refuge in Jordan. Through Lifeline Jordan, UNCHR sustains roughly 135,000 people, half of which are children, by providing each family with basic needs such as housing, food, medical care and education thanks to a contribution of approximately 1,500 euro a year.
The availability of a minimum monthly income allows families to survive without spiraling into extreme poverty which could push them to consider risky decisions, such as crossing the Mediterranean.
The companies involved in the initiative will commit to donate a contribution based on their annual turnover, assign professionals to support the training courses and employ a number of migrants who have taken part in this training.
