Bid to Win a Champions League Jersey from AS Roma Player Edin DŽEKO!

Big surprise of the event "I Pazzi di Danza" organized by Reach Out- La Casa di Andrea – the striker of football team Roma, EDIN DŽEKO, gave us as a gift his signed jersey – the one he was wearing while scoring the away goal that won Roma a place in this year’s Champions league quarter-finals for the first time since 2008.

 

We are immensely grateful to Edin to have given us this very Champions league jersey, the one with which such a decisive goal was scored on March 13th in the match against the Ukrainian team Shakhtar Donetsk.

 

The jersey is on sale at the online auction – https://www.charitystars.com/…/maglia-gol-dzeko-indossata-e…

 

All the proceeds will be donated to the Andrea Tudisco Association (http://www.assandreatudisco.org/), sustaining the Casa di Andrea. It has now been twenty years that the Casa di Andrea gives hospitality to children with very serious conditions, and to their families, helping them face their ill health in a warm and comfortable environment that in time becomes a real home for them, as it is equipped aiming to give them a thorough moral support.

We thank Edin Dzeko in the name of both St. Stephen’s school and of the Tudisco Association for his greatly thoughtful gesture, for collaborating towards the expansion of the association!

The auction is now open. Increase your bids!

From the St. Stephen's Refugee Committee

Activities which include talks, presentations, photographic exhibits, meetings, charitable work and even football matches are the focus of the work of the SSS Refugee Committee in order to raise awareness of the ongoing plight of refugees. While not a new theme for St Stephen’s, this year faculty decided that an organized and coordinated school-wide effort needed to be made to explore some of the issues around the reasons of what Amnesty International is referring to as the “worst crisis of our time.” 

 

Last week, students heard a first-hand account of the crisis from Jonathan Dumont, a former parent and Head of Television at WFP, who also shared his photographs in an exhibit at the SSS Cultural Center. Students and the Refugee committee have organized a GoFundMe campaign to bring much needed medical care to an orphan Mr Dumont met int he Congo. You can read more about their efforts to raise money in the Head’s Newsletter. 

 

And this past Wednesday evening, a football match was organized with a team of Eritreans, who fled their home country under great duress and difficult circumstances to create new lives in their host country of Italy. They met St Stephen’s' team of footballers, scored some goals and had a chance to exchange stories.

 

Throughout the year, we will be bringing you more stories about the work of the SSS Refugees Committee and hope to also share student impressions about the ongoing crisis.

You can also read more on this topic in the upcoming issue of The Cortile magazine due out in January 2018.
