"I came to share with them the joy and bring the presence and affection of Pope Francis. You know that Pope Francis is very close to the poor, he is a great defender of the poor. I think they would feel very comfortable with those people. So it is a little to represent the figure and the word of the Pope, "he explains, talking about the purpose of his visit to Father Pedro Opeka and his protégés.
Oasis of Hope
He especially thanked this Argentinean priest who spent nearly 47 years of his life fighting poverty in Madagascar. "In the name of Pope Francis, we especially thank Father Pedro and all those people who embark on social projects," says Cardinal Pietro Parolin in his speech.
For 28 years, Father Pedro Opeka has tried to withdraw thousands of families from poverty in Antananarivo, creating Akamasoa. Currently, Akamasoa has 26,000 residents,
