VICTIMS OF ITALIAN EARTHQUAKE HELP KOSOVO REFUGEES

Funds from Charity Concert Donated to Refugee Children

          ROME, JUN 1 (ZENIT).- The inhabitants of the city of Foligno, Italy, still recovering from the earthquake that shook the region of Umbria, have expressed their solidarity with the Kosovo refugees by donating to them the proceeds from a charity concert.

          When Foligno was stricken by the earthquake, the Roman orchestra and choir of Saint Cecilia, and its principal director, Myung Whun Chung, decided to offer the city the proceeds of a concert held in Saint Dominic's auditorium.

          The unique event ended two days ago with a most generous donation. The people of Foligno decided to forget about their own problems and to think about those who are worse off than they are. They announced that the proceeds of the concert would go instead to the displaced people of Kosovo, especially to the children of that suffering region in the Balkans. ZE99060101
