Maria Bonino was a paediatrician from the town of Biella (Italy) who devoted her life to the care of African children. The Maria Bonino Foundation is committed to the development of projects for the protection of maternal and child health of sub-Sahara African countries.

Thanks to donations, and to the precious collaboration of other humanitarian Organisations, from 2006 to date the Maria Bonino Foundation has identified, supported and completed several projects, while many others are ongoing.
