(ANS – Badajoz) – One of the city buses of Badajoz, in Extremadura, Spain, has been sent to Freetown, Sierra Leone. Thee it will become a mobile unit that can help thousands of children at risk of exclusion who are living on the streets of the city.  It will serve to provide medical assistance, food and psychosocial help.

(ANS - Lungi) - Fr Ubaldino Andrade Hernandez is a Salesian missionary who has worked in Sierra Leone. He was in Rome at the Generalate during the photographic exhibition: "Ebola, and beyond Ebola". His testimony is a sign of trust in God.  He says that in those strange days of the epidemic they were living with "a real fear of death” but they decided to stay there as parents for many abandoned children." Looking at the pictures of the exhibition, the memories came to mind, and his eyes paused to remember his experiences. "Staying was the best option."

(ANS - Freetown) - The problem of street children, even after many years of efforts, continues to be a difficult issue to deal with, both by the Government and by institutions working for the protection of minors. Last December, 28 children who had been housed at the Salesian centre "Don Bosco Fambul" in Freetown, Sierra Leone, were happily welcomed back into their families. Following that, staff from the Salesian house went out to the streets looking for other vulnerable children and suggesting the Salesian rehabilitation programme to them.

(ANS - Lagos) - In Nigeria, everything is the best: the number of inhabitants of the country which is the most populous in Africa, the strong facial features and burly physique of the people, the loud laughter of the people when they speak, the sound of drums and the singing at Mass, even the dust which rises everywhere and covers everything in a short time. In this country so full of life, the Salesians are dynamic and hard-working, all for the good of the young.

(ANS – Monrovia) – Human migration is an historical phenomenon that lasted for centuries and caused the growth and prosperity of many countries. But it is a double-edged sword: it has its benefits and its perverse effects. What really matters is creating a safe, free and just society in every country.

  • WHY WE HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE

    My thought goes to the Salesian presences around the world because our dream is that they might be true dispensers of life to so many young people, and a life in abundance, an authentic, true life which gives them dignity and helps them also experience the great gift that God is in their lives.
