Verona, Italy -- A Bridge of Solidarity

The centennial of the birth of Alvaro del Portillo inspired the Aquila Association for Social Development to take up a collection for the treatment of children affected by drepanocitosis (sickle cell anemia). The collection was destined for the Monkole Hospital Center, in Kinshasa, in the Congo R.D., to help fight this blood disease that, in central Africa, proves fatal to 50 to 75 percent of the children who suffer from it in the first five years of their life.

On Sunday, March 9, the fund-raising campaign organized a round table moderated by the journalist Marina Zerman. Taking part from Monkole Hospital were Dr. René Lumu Kambala and the nurse Josephine Gadra, with 130 people attending. A piano concert by Stefania Cafaro was also organized in March at Verona’s Circolo Ufficiali concert hall.
