  • Description

    HUNDREDS OF VILLAGERS IN THE POOR COUNTRY AREA OF CARPINELLO, NEAR NAPLES, HAVE BEEN CONTRIBUTING TO THE BUILDING OF A CHILDREN'S ORPHANAGE NEAR THEIR VILLAGE. TOO POOR TO GIVE MONEY, THEY GAVE THEIR LABOUR AND CARRIED BLOCKS OF STONE FROM A QUARRY TO THE VILLAGE OF CARPINELLO WHERE THE ORPHANAGE IS TO BE BUILT.

    VILLAGERS FROM DOZENS OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES JOINED THE PILGRIMAGE AND FORMED A HUGE HUMAN CONVOY FROM THE QUARRY TO THE VILLAGE, WHERE THEY PILED THE STONES ON THE SITE OF THE PROPOSED ORPHANAGE.

    THE PILGRIMAGE WAS CARRIED OUT UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF THE "VILLAGE OF THE CHILD" ORGANISATION, WHICH, WITH 14 BRANCHES THROUGHOUT ITALY, IS DEDICATED TO THE CARE OF ORPHAN CHILDREN IN CARPINELLO.

    THE FIRST PILGRIMAGE MADE TEN YEARS AGO AND THE SITE OF THAT IS NOW A FLOURISHING ORPHANAGE THE HOME OF HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN.

    WITH THE NEW PILGRIMAGE, THE VILLAGE OF THE CHILDREN WILL BE ABLE TO ADD MORE FACILITIES FOR THE CHILDREN.

    AT THE PILGRIMAGE, MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN SHOULDERED BLOCKS OF STONE. OTHERS USED CARTS AND TRUCKS, WHILE SOME FARM WORKERS BROUGHT DONKEYS TO HELP CARRY THE LOADS.
