This is the climate that welcomed the group which Saverio Romeo was part of with the #HumanAndFriendly project; on the 3rd of November we visited the orphanage of Akouda in Tunisia.
The structure, that we can define as a real oases of serenity in despair, welcomes about 100 children and young people from 5 to 24 years old: everyone no longer has parents or the same can no longer look after them.
A “dad” manages the structure and many “moms” take care of the little ones every day, trying to recreate what could be an environment that is closer to what is perceived as a family.
Amid a thousand economic, bureaucratic and psychological difficulties, we have tried to bring a breath of carelessness and hope.
