Sagrada Família lights up green for World Day to Fight Myasthenia Gravis - Sagrada Família lights up green for World Day to Fight Myasthenia Gravis
On 2 June, from 9:00 pm to midnight, the Nativity façade of the Sagrada Família was lit up in green for World Day to Fight Myasthenia Gravis.
This initiative was promoted by AMES (Spanish Association of Myasthenia Gravis), a non-profit organisation that aims to address the needs of those with this condition and their families, helping and advising them on how to live with the disease. Plus, they are fighting for more research and recognition and understanding of Myasthenia.
Sagrada Família is lit up three times a year to support various charity initiatives. This year it was also lit up on 5 May for European Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month and 8 May for World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day.
In addition to these illuminations, like every year, the Sagrada Família also took part in Earth Hour in March by switching off the Nativity façade completely.
