The purpose of the “Renato Grandi Foundation” is to help children in need of support, care and schooling in every part of the world.

Many nations suffer from a huge scarcity of water; its contamination makes it a carrier of diseases. This is the main cause of infant mortality.

The financial resources of the Foundation will therefore also be used to combat this problem, with the construction of wells and aqueducts, to tap into pure water.

 At the explicit request of the first donors, who have constituted the base capital of the Foundation, we are continuing their charitable work

The Chairman
Viviana Grandi.
