Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Flying Angels: Saving Lives one Flight at a Time


Flying Angels
"I paid a doctor to go from Italy to Romania to pick up a baby but we lost the baby because we arrived too late.”

To not lose another life, he started a foundation called 'Flying Angels', where funds are readily available to fly the child in need and his parents, to a doctor or vice-versa. A scientific committee reviews the application and finds the right specialist for that medical condition. 

Flying Angels
"The president will decide which is the doctor in charge for that kind of disease. The doctor will study the documents and say, yes or no. Once the scientific committee agrees, then we issue the tickets.”

The medical complications include everything from heart problems to cancer and transplants.  Even though the foundation started about a year and a half ago, more than 30 lives have already been saved in different parts of the world.  

Flying Angels
"We had children coming from everywhere. From Asia, Vietnam, to Europe, from Europe to America.”

The foundation receives its funds from donations. Pollio says the money doesn't have to be given straight to the foundation. Instead donors can directly buy a plane ticket for a child or doctor. That way, they know exactly how their money is being used.  

Flying Angels
"We think the moment you give a better life to somebody you are passing good faith and this good faith is then passed on to the world.”

The work can be overwhelming, but Pollio says helping a child and possibly saving a life far outweighs the challenges. It's something he describes as a 'tsunami of good'.
