Headquartered in Salerno, S.O.Solidarietà Onlus, is a non profit organisation registered with the Regional Volunteer Register in Campagna (0450 del 19/04/204) and the CSV – Volunteer Services Centre in Salerno.
The organisation was established in 2001 in response to a “cry for help” from Sister Maria Norom of the Nigerian Sisters of Charity of the Precious Blood who appealed to a group of doctors and paramedics she had met at the hospital in Nocera Superiore (Salerno).
From that moment on, the association has been active in the areas of healthcare, social services and education in villages in the province of Owerri – Imo State (ex Biafra) – Nigeria, aiding the local population wherever a need has been identified.
The association finances projects via fund raising events and private donations.
Public and private groups donate material for use in Nigeria.
The national headquarters is located at No. 6 Via F. Galdo in Salerno. There are three other operational units located in Milan; S. Canzian d’Isonzo (GO), and Emekuku – Owerri (Imo State – Nigeria).
