The Davida Association
is a non-profit company that has recently started a collection project purchasing food parcels to be distributed throughout the Napoli/Salerno region where there is most need. The Two Volcano Sprint was created to reinforce this not-for-profit organisation, using participants’ registration fees to fund an annual project focused on eco-sustainability in southern Italy.
In light of the global pandemic, funding raised from the 2VS events of 2019 and 2020, went towards supporting families and individuals whose livelihoods have been affected by the Covid-19 lockdown. Three truck loads of care packages with enough supplies to sustain families and individuals living under difficult conditions for a week, were distributed throughout the first half of 2020. Eight tons of canned and dry supplies were donated in the first half of 2021.
The not-for-profit was also able to purchase and distributed close to one hundred tablets to schools in the communities of Ercolano and Nicolosi, for children without a computer or tablet and were forced to study online after schools across Italy shut down.
All parcels, tablets and supplies are purchased and delivered by the 2VS team personally and given directly to accredited distribution organizations, without any intermediary.
In these trying times, helping others in need is its own reward. If you are not able to participate in the cycling event, but would like to contribute towards our projects, you can donate directly through Paypal using the 2VS email: firstname.lastname@example.org
