●   The Spanish contingent in Naples delivers  food in Lago Patria

The Spanish contingent in Naples responded to the call for help from the organization 'Give a Hand' showing support and solidarity to Italian civil society.

In two days the Spanish contingent organized the collection of basic foodstuffs that were delivered to the 'Sacra Famiglia' parish in Lago Patria, the town hosting NATO Joint International Headquarters in Naples (JFC NP).

The aim of this first delivery was to meet the most urgent needs of families who are experiencing greater difficulties due to the adverse economic effects that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing in the area.

'Give a Hand' is a non-profit association dedicated to the distribution of funds and resources to children and families in Zanzibar. Due to the current crisis of COVID-19, the association  had to redirect its charitable activities to offer support to the neediest families close to the parish.


The Spanish contingent in Naples includes the personnel assigned to the JFC Headquarters and the 2nd NATO Signals Battalion, located in the towns of Lago Patria and Grazzanise respectively.

The Spanish contingent is currently made up of 66 men and 5 women belonging to the Army, Navy, Air Force, MIlitary Legal Corps and Civil Guard. Four Spanish civilians belonging to the NATO staff also work at the Headquarters.
