(ANS - Madrid) – The Rector Major Fr Angel Fernandez Artime, is in Spain at present. In these days the Salesian works have stopped to listen to the words of the tenth successor of Don Bosco. "There are about 5 thousand young Galicians - and 100 thousand in the whole of Spain - being formed at the school of Saint John Bosco, the same kind of school as the one in which Pope Francis was educated" wrote the newspaper "La Voz de Galicia".

(ANS - Aleppo) - "Dear Fr Munir, Greetings from Aleppo, the dying city as it is called ... The situation in the city is very difficult and worrying". So writes Fr Pier Jabloyan, SDB, from Aleppo, to Fr Munir El Rai, the Middle East Provincial who is in Italy at present. He is reporting on the condition in the city after the latest bombing.

(ANS - Bangui) - The "Peace Spaces" campaign is an initiative of the Salesians to rise funds that will benefit thousands of children, adolescents and young people of the Damala and Galabadja neighbourhoods of Bangui, capital of the Central African Republic. The situation in the country remains difficult, but the Salesians have decided to continue their educational service, even if the problems do not stem only from the lack of economic resources, but above all from the violence. The complaints of abuse suffered by hundreds of girls continue, but education cannot wait so they have started to raise funds to create "Peace Spaces”.

  • 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.
