  • Democratic Republic of the Congo - Ishara's story, a boy in the street

    (ANS - Bukavu) - In their message of last May 13, the Bishops of Northern and Southern Kivu, members of the Provincial Episcopal Assembly of Bukavu, once again denounced: "The number of street children are growing at an alarming rate." The Salesians active in Bukavu, such as Fr Piero Gavioli, deal with this situation on a daily basis: not statistical data, but real children, innocent victims. On the example of their founder, the Children of Don Bosco still succeed in giving hope, dignity and opportunities for the future.



    “It is she who has done everything” Don Bosco used to say. “i am convinced that the blessed mother continues to do everything.”

    It is she who gives us Jesus, and by her presence, her closeness, and her help urges us all to live always with great faith
