Anima Universale helps the FIDES Body of Bangalore, founded by salesian sister Nancy Pereira (1923-2010), defined as “the entrepreneur of poor people” by Pope John Paul II. Many Italian people knew this extraordinary sister also thanks to the movie “A simple gift” in which the famous Italian actress Virna Lisi played the role of Sister Nancy. The film was broadcast in Italy by the television channel “RAI 2” on 27th December 2000. (In the photograph, the President of Anima Universale is between father Matteo and sister Nancy, with the wonderful nuns of FIDES mission).
From 2001 to 2010, Anima Universale cooperated with sister Pereira by sponsoring thirty children who live in the slums near Bangalore. Thanks to our support, they were able to attend school and build a better future for themselves and their families. We donated Euro 52,796.22 for these sponsorships.
Moreover, Anima Universale donated to sister Nancy Euro 51,093.10 for her FIDES project and contributed to the making of one of her dreams come true: the building of a family-house for orphans, where many children saved from loneliness and hunger are already living. Sister Nancy accompanied some ramias to visit them, and their happy welcome was amazing to say the least.
