And it is that living a life committed to the welfare of others and not only that of our most intimate environment, constitutes a factor of obvious protection for the whole family.

And in the same way, we are contributing to children developing the idea of ​​a world in which everything is not perfect, in which there is suffering and injustice, but in which it is possible to act when someone needs help, because if at any time he requires it himself, he will know how to ask for it.
