Inauguration of the “Yurt Camp” in Ulan Bator (Mongolia)
Following a period of torrential rain, 27 August saw the inauguration in the Chingeltei district of Ulan Bator of the village of yurts created by Need You Onlus and the Mongolia Red Cross in collaboration with Montura. Conceived and executed thanks to the determination of anthropologist David Bellatalla, the camp is home to more than 20 families of mothers and disabled children, a medical centre and an artisan workshop. The funding for the humanitarian project, entitled “A Yurt for All” (Una Ger per tutti) was raised partially from sales of the book “Eugenio Ghersi. On the Plateau of the Subtle I” (Sull’altopiano dell’Io sottile), published by Montura Editing and edited by Professor Bellatalla.
