10 March 2022

Aleppo, Syria - The Dies Natalis of the Servant of God Matilde Salem, the Mamma Margherita of the children of Aleppo, was commemorated this past February 27. In this old photograph, Matilde is portrayed together with one of the young people welcomed into the "Georges Salem Foundation", the project desired by her late husband, Georges Elias Salem, and which she continued, entrusting it to the Salesians. The Sons of Don Bosco, together with the young people of Aleppo, became a family for Matilde. In all those years, there was no charitable institution in which she was not involved as a supporter.
