Exemple

For years we had been looking for a way to help the street boys and children in Bucarest. It is a wound in the heart to realize that in our beautiful Europe there are unconceivable situations of children and teenagers forced to live by wits, on prostitution, hidden inside sewers or along the streets of big cities, forced to sniff glue not to feel hungry and cold.
At last the opportunity came when we got in touch and met the association Parada that has been offering human and social support every day since 1996, using various assistance tools such as social art, education and health services, mobile Caravan and a day center that guarantee a future for children and young people on the streets.
After some telephone contacts, Arianna and Andrea (the photographer) decided to get to know personally the operators of Parada and their activities , to understand where and how we could be able to help.
Everything was very different from the feverish preparation of risky missions in war zones we were used to, everything seemed very easy. The flight was short, without stopovers and with social timetables. Franco, the president of Parada, was waiting for us and everything had been well organized from both sides.
But too soon we had enjoyed! The journey and stay did not present particular risks, but the situation we came across deeply touched our hearts.
Always and only children, young boys defeated, abandoned, alone, desperate and without a future to which Parada tries to give support, hope and real possibilities. Often achieving the goal but, in any case, lightening situations of utter squallor.
Parada day-tme center has a lot of coming and going of young people who have a meal, have a shower and suppor t to access medical facilites. Sometmes they ask for help to nd a job that is not on the road.
They are practcally all drug addicts, born and raised on the road and sewers.
Andrea and me thought we had seen everything a”er a war and refugee camps but also who has a manhole as a house and prosttutes himself at the age of 10 and dies of HIV a”er a life of violence and marginalizaton produces anger and desire to do more for them.
The circus actvites that the associaton carries out saves some of them giving them the awareness of being a person and not an invisible one.
The mobile unit exits three tmes a week to visit a large number of children and families bringing them basic necessites against hungry and cold. Despite this tragic situaton we stll have new born.
Andrea and me are very emotonally a+ected and always we bring home our feelings.
SSCh agrees with us to support Parada contributng nancially to what the mobile unit is doing and visitng them on bi-monthly basis to o+er a concrete help.

A new heart challenge!! It seems an invisible help but it allows to reach a greater number of children Parada day-tme center has a lot of coming and going of young people who have a meal, have a shower
