31/1/2016 - Sierra Leone - Day 30 January, the Rector Major visited Fambul.

(ANS- Freetown)After his visit to the prison he came to the residence of the Salesian at Don Bosco Fambul to have a chat and lunch with the street boys, children that survive from Ebola and the girls that are rape and suffer domestic violence and the boys at the group home. The compound of the Salesian was filled with youngsters who are waiting to welcome the 10th successor of Don Bosco. As he entered a song was raised saying that Don Bosco will shine today… when the sun goes up, when the sun goes down Don Bosco will always shine.
