The Salesian network, rooted in Venezuela for over 120 years, is particularly sensitive to the condition of young people to whom it dedicates its educational charism in parishes, oratories and schools. And for this reason Salesians are very worried about the dangers that young people face in a reality where violence dominates the streets and where there are no prospects in the economic field - despite the country being very rich in oil.
To take stock of the "Venezuela case", Missioni Don Bosco organized a conference aimed at highlighting the gravity of the economic and social crisis to which it seems that the international community and the media do not want to devote sufficient attention.
The appointment is for next Wednesday, September 19, at Valdocco (5:00-7:30 PM - via Maria Ausiliatrice, 32, Sangalli hall).
The conference will gather testimonies from the country that is going through the most serious crisis in its history and will present the commitment of Missioni Don Bosco and the entire Salesian Family to help young people and their families.
Amonf the many speakers, several Venezuelan bishops and religious; Maria Eugenia Esparragoza, anthropologist; Maria de Jesus Requena, President of the Venezuela Association in Piedmont; and Ester Negro, photojournalist of Missioni Don Bosco. Video contributions from Caracas are also planned. The journalist of "Radio Tre Mondo", Giulia De Luca, will moderate the work.
