AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara were volunteers for a day at the canteen of the Corso Concordia in Milano.
Opera San Francesco for the Poor (OSF) was founded by the Friars Capuchin of viale Piave in Milan and since 1959 has worked to guarantee free assistance and shelter to those in need, allowing them to enjoy a hot meal, a shower and to wear clean clothes, but also guarantees the right to healthcare with free medical check-ups and medicines.
The Twitter profile of the Opera published a video of Maldini and Massara as they served people in the canteen, with Maldini reflecting on the experience afterwards.
“We did an hour of volunteering and it was a beautiful and touching experience. I think it also serves to keep our feet on the ground. An experience that filled our hearts. Opera San Francesco is dignity,” he said.
Massara added: “Very nice. We have experienced first-hand this reality of all these OFS volunteers who are close to the many people in difficulty. Here there is a widespread cordiality that is contagious. Opera San Francesco is necessary.”
