- The money will go to the Vicente Ferrer Foundation within the framework of the decent housing construction project in the village of Anantapur, in southern India.
The solidarity dinner that Palexco held on November 5, for the benefit of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, raised almost 23,000 euros thanks to the donations of the nearly 200 attendees at the gala and the generous contributions that numerous companies in the city allocated to the project.
The money raised during the Solidarity Window will go entirely to the construction of seven decent homes in a village in Anantapur (India), a project promoted by the Vicente Ferrer Foundation. At the Palexco charity dinner, which was born with the aim of becoming a benchmark solidarity event in the city, individuals and companies from the city participated, responding brilliantly to the call for solidarity from the exhibition hall. The objective of this social project is to improve health and access to a decent life, provide protection and security to families and empower women in Indian society.
