The Foreign Minister, Antonio Tajani, he was in Fabriano today to act as godfather at the baptism of a Nigerian girl. “It all started on the occasion of a visit to the center by Don Aldo, who wanted me and my wife to know the whole reality of these girls who were saved from the streets by these courageous priests,” Tajani told Fabriano.

“While they were talking to these girls, one of them fell on her knees in front of me. Speaking a little in Italian, a little in English she asks me to save her daughter”, who “had been entrusted to her mother when she came to Italy”. “Then her mother died and she was staying with some relatives. Through our consulate and our embassy we recovered this little girl and within a few months we managed to get her back to Italy. Now she is with her mother as she should be,” continued the minister.

“Don Aldo proposed that Brunella, my wife, and I baptize her and so we are here. There are many stories to tell, but politics is service and I believe that the State must be at the service of citizens even when they are not Italian citizens but are guests. It's a beautiful story that makes me happy to be a minister,” said Tajani. “This girl had been exploited and it is right that in such dramatic stories children can be reunited with their mother. They are not criminals, they are victims of trafficking and turning a human being into a slave is the worst thing that can be done,” said the head of the Farnesina. “Now, thanks to this courageous priest, she has been brought back to life. I hope that with her daughter by her side she can live out her years peacefully, putting behind her what she has suffered and healing the wounds she has suffered,” continued Tajani.
