  • Colombia – Cali: Former child soldiers wear Don Bosco's "uniform"

    (ANS - Cali) – Colombia’s guerrilla warfare began in 1952 and has caused over 300,000 deaths, while at the same time fueling the growth of powerful drug cartels. At the “Don Bosco Center” in Cali, however, young people who have known nothing but guerrillas and guerilla warfare are welcomed and accompanied on their path towards rehabilitation.



    The pandemic has changed the way in which we relate with the world, others, and ourselves. We need to rebuild and to begin again in greater solidarity and with greater awareness so as to rebound from a silent calamity marked by pain, confinement, struggle, and fear. What would Don Bosco do if he were alive today?
