On February 22nd 2019, at “Perché”, a Restaurant in Roncade (TV), AVSI hosted its annual dinner, where Better Silver was also present. During the evening, the results of the Campaign 2017/2018 have been exposed: the achieved objectives, the people involved and the activities carried out. Furthermore, AVSI’s 2018/2019 projects were presented and a surgeon’s personal witness was shared. The surgeon’s name was Alberto Reggiori, father of 7 children, who lived in Uganda for 10 years.
