"Nick" as told by his doctor friend

Fernando Gaion is a doctor who was part of the invaluable team of medical volunteers in Adwa.

He is an important Italian oncologist with a big heart.

On his return from Ethiopia, he told us this touching story...

The small Yesus

On Christmas Eve 2015, Sister Laura sent us a special message:

"Dearest friends, this is the BABY JESUS that Divine Providence gave us today, even if here in Ethiopia, Christmas is in 2 weeks: a baby about 5 months old, abandoned on the street, brought to the Axum hospital by passers-by and finally, given in custody to the mission because the doctors don't know what to do. We'll see if we can't bring this "Baby Jesus" to a hospital in Italy to try to understand the nature of the deformity and, if possible, cure it.
