YOUNG PEOPLE, KEEPERS OF THE PRESENT AND STRENGTH OF THE FUTURE
They say lies can become the truth if we repeat it enough. During these months, authorities have tried to convince people that the emergency was over, but those who are closely affected by the earthquake know that it is a lie.
The emergency is not over, the emergency has evolved. From the need of essential goods, to the need of a place to spend the night, to a house, to the need of having back the usual neighbours, schoolmates.. the familiar faces, the real foothold of reality within these wasted lands.
This is why this time we chose to help Susanna and her husband, forced to go back and forth every day to get from their hosting hotel to their workplaces (Grisciano and Terracino). What kept them up at night was that they were forced to keep their sons, aged 10 and 19 years old, away from their school and friends since the hotel was too far from the place where they used to live.
We might be biased, nonetheless we believe that young people are the keeper of the present and the strength of the future, so we must help these young men to keep on having faith in something, or our mission and believe shall fail!
So here we are, in Illica, delivering the twenty-ninth prefabricated house to this beautiful family and wishing to these young men a happy school year with their friends.
