Today it is history

It is not a fairy tale. We went to the Moon 102 times, we helped friends in 155 countries around the world, on 5 continents. We have been able to carry out 3,600 humanitarian interventions and development projects by shipping 8,850 tons of medicines, food, equipment ... We have welcomed over 50 thousand people from 133 countries, distributed millions of meals, carried out tens of thousands of medical and specialist visits. All this allows me to say thanks to our neighborhood that welcomed us, to Turin, to Italy, to Europe, to the whole world, to the women and men who have trusted us. We are people who try to give back a soul to the world starting from transparency, gratuitousness, availability, passion, fraternity, beauty, justice, wisdom, care, responsibility. We commit ourselves to putting the person at the center, respect for life and creation to go in the direction of a stable peace, the fruit of works of justice. Finally, we believe it is important to restart the participation of all in social life in view of their own well-being and the common good. Our happiness is to make others happy, to be truly "all brothers", able to work as a team, to pass from me to us, to "give back" resources and skills by putting them at the service of all.
Alone, mistrust prevails, together it becomes possible to carry out projects that seem impossible. I have a big one: abolish nuclear weapons now, an enemy that can destroy us. At this time when the pandemic makes us think, let's think about this too. And let's do our best to make it not just a dream.
