We preserve humanity
Fundraising by Alessandro Caianiello
Hi I'm Alessandro and I volunteered in Greece with Operation Dove - the nonviolent peace corps of the Pope John XXIII Community - along the path of people fleeing their country to pursue a hope.
The hope is for a life far from suffering, war, persecution. However, if they make it to Europe, these people still find agony.
The wait for entry procedures into our society are demeaning; the conditions inhumane; violence pollutes every shred of humanity.
In this context, however, I have found people still capable of dreaming. People like R., an Iraqi woman who, after crying about the violence in the refugee camp, smiled and hugged me.
For all of them and for us, we are there to preserve the sense of joy, of tenderness. We are there to preserve the sense of humanity.
If you, like me, want to participate in this great embrace, you can do so by supporting Operation Dove's activities in Greece through a donation. Thank you!
