The former bodyguard of Pausini in Ghana helps disabled children, her coffee Beans
GENOA - What is the most theoretically distant and difficult to reconcile from the golden world of the jet set and of his bodyguard, with respect to solidarity and to the world of international Cooperation? In the traditional narrative, would seem to be two parallel lines, destined never to meet, virtually an oxymoron. And instead. Instead, there is the story of Simona Branca, a girl from piedmont Arona, physiotherapist of talent, that at nineteen years of age left the home of his and began to devote himself to volunteering.

The encouragement of Laura Pausini. Brazil, India, Nigeria, Kosovo, is a story of a very personal round-the-world solidarity that Simona. And Luca Ricci, and her husband, milan, who in life is the bodyguard, for the people of the world of the show, or for private companies. And own by a of his clients, Laura Pausini was born the urge to begin to tell this wonderful story: “it is she who has encouraged me and pushed, with donations, enthusiasm, support, help”. But the Pausini is only the beginning of a story comprising many, for example, the current company where Curly works, employers and colleagues that allow you to Luca shifts and rotations, so every free minute, every second shift is modeled on his travels in Africa to reach his wife and his children.

medical Care, school, psychological support. , And especially on the “coffee Beans”, the non-profit organization that she has founded and manages in Ghana, to help especially disabled children. The twenty children in ghana who live fixed in the community of Simona and Luca – the “beans” precisely – and 54 assisted in various ways are not only physically disabled, but often the victims of family violence, abandoned, violated, suffering in any way, that thanks to the Italian ngo found their second home and often their salvation. And “coffee Beans” is almost a total experience, ranging from medical care to assistance school, from the psychological support of the paperwork: one of the battles (won) recently has been to reduce the travel times of the roads, to get to the hospital and the closest neighbors, whose distance can often be the one that separates life and death, between the small houses scattered in the jungle and the dirt road full of potholes.

The role of the Italian embassy in Ghana. In all this, Simona and Luke discovered that they had also somehow diplomats, managing to create a great relationship with the Italian embassy, and also with the local authorities. “Our embassy in Ghana – tell with the eyes that sparkle with enthusiasm and passion – it gives us a big hand for the visa, both on entry to the volunteers, both in output and more and more often, thanks to Italy, we can treat children in Africa would not be curable”. The album of memories of the children who would not have been possible to see in Africa and that they had a new life in Italy, tells the story of the reconstruction of the face of a child at the San Paolo in Milan, and the particular interventions of physiotherapy in Treviso, a cure for alzheimer's disease Moebius...

integration with the institutions in ghana. All of this, somehow, also manages to be perfectly integrated with the local institutions in ghana: the juvenile Court, and that often gives the children in foster care just to the “coffee Beans”, the police, the social workers. In short, the Italian ngo in Africa becomes a kind of social welfare, with a role of a substitute for interventions that institutions could not make, but which would make recognising the great social value. In Ghana, as is often the case in Africa, when you change who is in government at times overwhelms everything, with a purge of anyone who cooperated with the previous government.

Survived every purge. Here, “coffee Beans” non-profit organization has survived every purge, the stronger of each administration and of each color of the rulers, because they all have recognized its vital role for the african Country, for example by working with the juvenile court, with the supplies of the clothes to the children, with the educational material provided to all the young students of the schools. And, really, to see these happy faces, these smiles or these sulking that they are those of all the children of the world, reconciles with life, even with the previous life of Luca, made of limelight, the small hours, five-star hotels and flights strictly in business, when you are not on private planes.

donations and volunteering. on the Contrary, the fact that he is still the face of the guard body is yet another proof that this is not an alternative, but it is simply the completion of a story, that life is not cut with the axe. And the attention of Simona and Luca to the disabilities, of all, is the real added value of coffee Beans non-profit organization. That lives only in private financing: donations of large employers that give the covenant to remain anonymous, contributions large and small from hundreds of people who know the work of Simona and Luca, and fall in love with, the money of five per thousand, a funding of the Waldensian Church with a project married thanks to the otto per mille, the long-distance adoptions. And then the volunteers, which is another value-added of those who choose the houses in the middle of the jungle of Ghana and the support of the children of Simona and Luca.
