Friday, 7 March 2014

Kampala (Agenzia Fides) - On the occasion of International Women's Day, the "miraculous necklaces" of the NGO Meeting Point International, in Kampala will return to Italy. Made by mothers, the 48 000 pearl necklaces made from recycled paper for the Tents Campaign in Italy, of the AVSI Foundation, have contributed to the construction of Giussani High School in the capital of Uganda and a new wing was inaugurated on 25 February. The funds raised served to build the school from scratch. On March 8, it will be possible to support the initiative again in Milan. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 07/03/2014)
