“Our work with Coolmine has also had an impact within our own organisation:
“It is in Mediolanum DNA and culture to be supportive and to give concrete contribution to people or organisations in need of help. Our Fondazione Mediolanum, since 2002, has helped thousands of children across the world and it is with this spirit that we are so glad to be able to help Coolmine, its clients and its clients’ children.
“Mediolanum staff appreciate the struggle that certain people have to deal with and that in many cases addiction is not a real choice but a consequence of an unlucky situation in which people find themselves without a choice. Our staff also appreciate the resilience shown by the clients of Coolmine in overcoming incredible adversity, with resilience being a fundamental characteristic to have in life in general and in an organisation like ours.
“We believe that the more people understand of why certain people end up in need of recovery and the opportunity to overcome addiction, the more they will be sympathetic to their effort to succeed and then potentially support more organisations like Coolmine.”
