BECAUSE “ARE YOU IN?

Don Oreste Benzi, founder of the Pope John XXIII Community, had his own way of convincing the people he met to accept his proposals: “Come on, are you in?” he would say, with the serious look and enthusiastic smile of children. And they were proposals that seemed out of this world… instead thousands of people chose to share his commitment to the last ones, welcoming them into their homes, taking care of them and making them part of their families. TheComunità since 1968, the year of its birth, is concretely committed to fighting marginalization and poverty in all its forms. Precisely for this reason it has launched a platform of Personal Fundraising with the aim of raising funds to concretely remove the causes of injustice.
