Last December, the Navarrese society mobilized to help the Syrian refugees trying to reach the European coasts and to that end it launched the campaign ‘Navarra opens the arms’ (Nafarroa besoak zabalik), promoted by entrepreneurs, media communication and entities of the Autonomous Community. Now it is the Osasuna Athletic Club, as well as the Osasunistas Peñas Federation, who have joined the initiative to collaborate in this campaign. During the next sports match against Oviedo, vouchers will be sold for the purchase of bottles of olive oil, whose price will be 7 euros each, in order to collect the money that is needed to pay for a boat with which to attend the immigrants, main objective of the campaign.
