Stories of Engera

Engera è un'associazione nata per occuparsi degli altri. Ma il tesoro di esperienze arricchisce noi stessi, ci rende più completi e scrive una traccia indelebile nella nostra vita.

I racconti dalla viva voce dei partecipanti alle missioni engera sono piccole biografie: c'è chi sottolinea le storie chi ha vissuto, chi spiega a cuore aperto come nasca la motivazione per questi viaggi in Africa. E l'arte può essere una traccia che restituisce il senso e la gioia di queste esperienze.

Translated by Alberto Amadasi. Hi, my name is Giada Beccari and I’m an obstetrician from Milan. These are my reasons to go to Africa! I really feel the “call” to roll up my sleeves and to try, in my small, to help in improving the condition of who is in poverty, illness, hunger and lack....

I am writing to express my interest in the available surgeon position and I can begin to work and cure patients in Africa by Engera.
I often wonder the origin of this wish to go to Africa, to know Africa, to live Africa…well, I’ve never found a rational explanation…I feel like I have Africa inside. I feel an uncontrollable attraction for a land full of tradition where the so acclaimed “modern civilization” has never......
