The bishop of Padua, Msgr. Claudio Cipolla, responded to an appeal for help from the "Lisolachenoncè Teolo ODV" association, which is trying to bring about sixty children and young people from a Ukrainian orphanage to Italy, and more precisely to Padua. Bishop Claudio gave availability for the reception (room and board) in the rooms of the minor seminary of Rubano, then leaving the management of the presence to the association, which since 1999 has been in charge of welcoming Ukrainian orphaned children and which is chaired by Paolo Jurisprudent. Together with Dr. Stefania Barbieri, the association's health referent, Bishop Claudio became a spokesperson to ask the Italian and Venetian Red Cross and the Italian Embassy and Consulate in Warsaw to encourage the transit of minors through Polish territory. The situation is currently evolving and we are waiting to know if the group made up of about sixty minors and some women from Ukraine will be able to cross the borders with Poland and subsequently transit to Italy. In the meantime, the reception is being organized at the Rubano seminary. A social tam tam has led many people to make themselves present by bringing a lot of help. But now it is important to point out the real needs. There is NO need for mattresses, blankets, or things for babies.
