As for the finances of the Project, Ann Sieuw, treasurer of the EuroTeam, has asked for contributions from all CLC European Communities .
The money can be transferred to the central Euro Team bank account mentioning "Sicily camp fund". It is the same bank account to which all European yearly contributions are sent.
In the annual report all communities can see the different contributions and will be able to verify those for the Migration Project.
The money for the project will then be transferred by Ann to the dedicated Italian bank account. For details on donations please Click here
