ADAPTION AT A DISTANCE

THE SALIANO SOCIAL CENTER HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE PROJECT PROMOTED BY THE ASSOCIATION AZIONE AIUTO (www.azioneaiuto.it) FOR ADAPTION AT A DISTANCE.

IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE,MANY SMALL CHILDREN LIVE THEIR LIVES IN ABJECT POVERTY AND DEGRADATION. THEY NEED FOOD, POTABLE WATER,ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE , AND A BASIC EDUCATION.

ADAPTION AT A DISTANCE IS THE MOST PRACTICAL METHOD TO BETTER THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF SMALL CHILDREN WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITY.

ADAPTION AT A DISTANCE GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISCOVER OTHER REALITIES. A CHILD`S PHOTOGRAPH, HIS OR HER STORY,LETTERS AND ,DRAWINGS, WILL TRANSPORT US TO LITTLE KNOWN AREAS OF THE WORLD.

THE CONTRIBUTION FROM THE SCS WILL HELP PEOPLE CREATE A FUTURE OF INDIPENDENCE AND THE ATTAINMENT OF CIVIL LIBERTIES.
