Restauration of the Orphanage "Sisters of Charity" in Agra

PDF Print E-mail

Ā 

We arrived in Agra at the beginning of December 2007, shortly after the death of our son Simone. At the funeral we asked to our friends and relatives not to give flowers but to make an offer in order to build a playground at an orphanage in India, having already planned in our mind, to start our NGO Association, that we then founded in November 2008.

We went to visit Mother Teresa's orphanage in Agra because it was the place we had been with Simone, seven years earlier, when in 2000 during a trip I was leading in India, I decided to take along my wife and my son, fulfilling a promise made to Simone in July. Simone was very impressed to see that these children, despite having everything they needed, such as food, medicines, beds and clothes, which already placed them in a privileged group, had no place to play and have fun as it should be for every child in the world, which often leaked by their dull and resigned looks.

The intention was to give the money collected at his funeral to the sisters of this orphanage and thus make possible the realization of a small park in the building. To our surprise, Sister Hazle, the Superior of the Institute at that time, told us that this was not possible as the sums of money they received from anybody, had to be forwarded to the Superior of the Mother House in Calcutta, which in turn would have been distributed according to the basic needs . She added further, that if we wanted to make the playground, we should have done it personally, hiring the workers directly, and buying the necessary materials ... only then we could have seen our wish realized. At this point we decided to stop in Agra. We had the opportunity to live in a free apartment, kindly offered us free of cost, by our friends Sandra and Anil, who reside in Delhi, and we started with the work.

Day after day, is born in us the desire to make more pleasant and suitable the environments where all children were living everyday. On this we focused so far, spending in Agra three months a year for three consecutive years, and in this coming January we hope to complete all the works at the orphanage in Agra, in order to start with the many new projects.
