Angel for a Day - Italy III

Teaser Photo Lyoness Angel for a Day Italy III - Lyoness Child & Family Foundation

A project cooperation between the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Association and Lyoness Italy.

Project Description

The children and families from the "Laboratorio Scuola" Children's Home and the "Associazione noi genitori uniti per l'autismo" Association visited the "Agriturismo Tina" Therapy Farm.

The "Agriturismo Tina" Farm specialises in providing therapy with animals for children and adolescents, so the visit there was not only a unique experience for the children and families, but it also showed everyone who was involved the calming, unique effect that animals can have on us.

The aim of this "Angel for a Day" activity was to enable the children from "Laboratorio Scuola" Children's Home and the families from the "Associazione noi genitori uniti per l’autismo" Association, to enjoy a day filled with fun and educational experiences. It was impressive to see the children deeply occupied with the animals, how fascinated they were by the animals and how carefully they handled them.

It was a day where the children and families could escape their daily problems and worries, by slipping into another world. The highlights of the day were a meal together and lots of presents, which were handed out by the Italian Lyoness Regional Office employees. "At last, I can build a sand castle with a moat. It's a dream come true!", one of the children said joyfully.

It was a wonderful day for everyone who helped and made this day possible, and we thank all the Members and Loyalty Merchants for their support.

We would like to thank the following Loyalty Merchant:
