It is hard to describe the feelings of that time in just a few lines: astonishment and gratitude, trust and beauty, marvel and perseverance in doing good. The same future [lostessofuturo] is denied to so many women and children in Africa – the future that we are committed to building and rebuilding every day in the field. A broken red thread which is pieced back together through our personal and daily commitment. Only this way can we build a single future that is richer and more beautiful for everyone.
Every year.
