MISSIONS

During the last four years we have constantly met children who live in very harsh conditions and which get worse year after year.

Our goal is to provide Syrian children with the certainty of having food and water, medical care and shelter from the cold.

We go there personally to distribute food, blankets, clothes and medical care. A doctor always accompanies us.

Missione Turchia Settembre 2019

Scrivo dopo tre settimane dal rientro, non so se è un bene o un male. Le emozioni si sedimentano, cambiano forma ma sono sempre dentro di te. Chi scrive, Arianna, sono 6 anni che parte e torna e non sa più in che posto mettersi e che direzione dare alla propria vita. Ma continua a […]

Missione Turchia Agosto 2019

E’ potuta partire solo Lidia come volontaria interna, accompagnata da un amico. Sono stati una settimana sul confine, ospiti del nostro contatto Majad (The Sons of War) che ci aiuta con i sostegni alle famiglie. Avevano delle attività universitarie da svolgere ma hanno anche impiegato gran parte del tempo a consegnare i sostegni alle famiglie, […]

Missione Turchia Luglio 2019

Questa missione è stata molto importante perché abbiamo deciso, oltre che portare pacchi alimentari e cure mediche, di censire i bambini. Al campo ci sono più di mille bambini, di cui più di cento sono orfani di entrambi i genitori o di uno dei due. Vorremmo iniziare a censire appunto quest’ultimi per poi far partire […]

Mission Moria – November 2018

A lot has been said about the Moira refugee camp in Lesbo Island (Greece). There are photoreports, reportages and not to forget some bitter disputes. Here, we would like to give a human scale significance to what we have seen and what we have been able to do during our visit there. We are a […]

Mission Turkey – October 2018

LIFE AT THE CAMP Yet another departure for another mission! I don't number them any longer, but I don't blur any of them and I don't forget any emotion they aroused . We left at dead of night to stay longer in the camp, already tired and worried, as usual. When you leave you bring [...]

Mission Turkey – June 2018

We already know that the missions at the Syrian border are always dangerous and difficult to plan. We need to set up things from Italy with the help of people and associations on  site as for  our safety and the distribution of food and first aid supplies. When we leave we already are aware that […]

Mission March 2018 -Turkey

BEYOND THE BORDER  –   Travel diary – by Lidia Boncoraglio MARCH 2018 The departure is always a moment full of emotions. The division of weight seems to be like an easy thing but   it consists of 120 kilos of food, clothing and games. Then we must try to plan everything though we are aware that […]

Mission June 2017 – Jordan

In the heat of May 2017, we were able to bring humanitarian aid to Jordan in the refugee camps of Al Mafraq, on the outskirts of Amman and finally to Zaatari. A total of 191 families were counted in poverty and discomfort.   This time with us came Dr. Andolina who for years has been [...]

Mission February 2017 – Iraq

In February 2017 we went to Iraq on our first mission there. The camp was situated a few kilometers from Mosul.

MISSION OCTOBER 2016 – TURKEY

“ARE THEY OURS? ” “ARE THEY MATTRESSES?” “BUT CAN WE KEEP THEM?” “AND CAN WE CHOOSE THE COLOUR?” “I, I, I WANT TO CARRY IT AND I WANT TO SHOW IT TO MY MUM!” “CAN I TAKE THE ONE WITH FLOWERS, THAT PINK ONE? AND MY SISTER THAT GREEN ONE, NO BLUE, NO SHE WANTS […]

MISSION AUGUST 2016 – JORDAN – SCHOOL MATERIAL DISTRIBUTION

How beautiful normality is! Wake up in the morning, hug mum and dad, be scolded because you are late and go to school. Going to school. Those lucky ones who can still embrace their mother and their father have had to renounce going to school for several years: which parent would send their child to [...]

MISSION JULY 2016 – TURKEY

Here is a brief account of the recently completed mission in July 2016 in the refugee camps which our volunteers have just visited.

MISSION OCTOBER 2015 – TURKEY

The beginning of each mission sees the pharmacy and the supermarket as the first stops. The employees and cashiers know who we are, they know why we are there and like every time, even this one, we came out with a huge amount of shopping that required 5 trolleys to be transported: 100 kg flour, [...]

Mission August 2015 – Turkey

La missione di Support and Sustain Children presso i profughi dislocati nelle piccole tendopoli lungo il confine turco-siriano si è appena conclusa, e i nostri volontari, dopo qualche lieve problema intestinale, sono rientrati nelle loro famiglie, sfiniti per la tensione e l’impegno ma anche carichi di soddisfazioni. Come sempre accade ad ogni rientro, ci si porta a [...]
