The lecture given by father Ángel is called ‘A better world is possible’, the same title as his latest book. Attendance is free until the venue is full.
The speaker develops his philanthropic work since 1962 through the charity ‘Mensajeros de la Paz’ (Messengers of Peace), with several solidarity initiatives in Spain and other 50 countries.
Unicaja Banco organizes on 19 September in Malaga the lecture ‘A better world is possible’, given by father Ángel, founder and president of Mensajeros de la Paz.
The lecture will take place at 20.00 at Unicaja Banco Conference Hall in Avenida de Andalucía, 10-12, and will include the presentation of father Ángel’s latest book, ‘A better world is possible’.
This lectura falls within other social actions organized by the bank, such as the series of lectures that father Ángel gave in Soria, Palencia and Zamora.
Ángel García Rodríguez, known as father Ángel, and Ángel Silva Sánchez founded Messengers of Peace in 1962 as ‘Cruz de los Ángeles’. It is a charity committed to the creation of homes for children and young people deprived of a family environment or who have been abandoned.
Over the years, the Mensajeros de la Paz expanded its activities to other vulnerable social sectors: women who are victims of domestic violence, people with physical or mental disabilities, and the elderly living in solitude, abandonment or indigence.
In any case, the goal of this charity has always been the human and social promotion of the most disadvantaged, and so it has adapted to the different social realities of Spain and the rest of the world.
The charity runs several social programmes, as well as initiatives on training, childhood, women, the elderly, immigrants, etc., and it manages nearly one hundred nursing homes for the elderly throughout Spain. All the activities aim to improve the social and life conditions of the most disadvantaged.
Mensajeros de la Paz has a staff or nearly 3,900 employees and more than 4,000 volunteers. Some 51,000 children and young people have stayed at its centers and nearly 12,000 old people have received assistance at its nursing homes.
In particular, this organization founded by father Ángel develops its activity in more than 50 countries and has been awarded, inter alia, with the Prince of Asturias Award of Concord.
