(ANS - Buenos Aires) - Covid-19 has reached every corner of the world and has become a pandemic. Some Latin American countries have made important decisions for the care of their citizens. In Argentina, President Alberto Fernández has extended the rigid quarantine until April 12 and has declared that "a falling economy rises again, but a falling life never rises again." Salesians from all parts of this large country are preparing to support, help and in some cases offer some Salesian works, because "the worst situation", with the peak of infections, is expected for the month of May.

(ANS – London) – The Salesians of Don Bosco UK have been strictly observing all of the measures to support our NHS and protect vulnerable people, and that has meant a lot of changes. However, much of our work is continuing, just in different ways. Staff who are able to do so are working safely from home to keep the GBR Province-wide services, including Communications, Youth Ministry and Don Bosco Publications, going.

(ANS - Freetown) - "We feel very close to Spain right now, because we know what it means to be in quarantine, to be afraid to go out on the street, to see people die during the epidemic ... We lived with Ebola."  These are the words of the Salesian missionary Fr Jorge Crisafulli, director of the "Don Bosco Fambul" work in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. The work he directs is prepared for the arrival of the pandemic, having had the experience of overcoming Ebola without ever ceasing to take care of the most needy children.

  • Brazil – How Don Bosco "fished"for his young people

    (ANS - São Paulo) - Don Bosco's vocational journey, as in all vocational paths, was not all easy, carefree or to be taken for granted. Doubts and difficulties were present in his maturation and decision-making process. Don Bosco also had doubts. He dreamed of becoming a Franciscan. He persistently wondered what his mission would be, where he should carry out his pastoral task. His life was marked by indecisions and uncertainty, but in the midst of his life he knew that there was a "medicine" that God sent him: it was Father Cafasso, his spiritual director.
