An initiative of the Friends of Father Marcellino in favor of the children of the Congo
Marino Pelliccioni, historical militant of the Amici di Padre Marcellino association, is the creator of an initiative that could make people smile, given that it is destined for a context in which the problems are fame, water supply and literacy.
Except that Marino had the opportunity to see – it is appropriate to say “on the field” – how much it can count for the most unfortunate children in Africa to be able to play football, already simply with a rags.
The time he picked up their ball and replaced it, with a stroke of authentic magic, with a real ball, he unleashed an irrepressible reaction of joy between the children on the pitch and those outside, who ran into a deafening din, which he himself called ” the noise of happiness “. The ball lasted only a few days, as the children play non-stop from morning to night, but Marino never forgot that feeling of explosive joy.
And so today, thanks to the donation of the San Marino Football Federation, Marino and the association to which he belongs, will be able to deliver to those children a set of balls and to divide football.
A small kind thought that warms us humanly and that pandemic, in the greyness of a chronic one, would be worth the opening of a news program.
