Little Robert is 3 years old. He lives in Sardinia and suffers from a rare genetic illness, Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, that will lead to a progressive and unstoppable deterioration of the neurological and mental functions.
800.000 euro is needed to save him. The group www.proroberto.it has been formed to collect the money and save his life. About 500.000 euro has been collected. 300.000 Euro is still needed. Let’s help him. Let’s not let him die.
Lots of people ask me to comment on the Finance Law. What should I say? A finance law that lets children die but thinks about the middle class, and the upper middle class, about progressive taxation, about 4 x 4s, about tightening up on company cars about weighty extras. I don’t care a fig for this finance law and even less do I care about the protest roundabouts.
What priorities do Italians have? How many children have rare illnesses? Where are the male and female ministers in these cases? The opposition and the government?
Which counts for more, the Messina bridge and the salary increase for parliamentarians or the life of our children?
I wonder why an Italian family has to be reduced to ask, to implore, to beg for charity from people to save their own child while the government spends thousands of million of Euro to patrol Lebanon and to converse with Hezbollah.
A State that doesn’t save its children from death because of illness is not a civil State. It’s a bank, a consortium of interests, an extraneous thing, almost repugnant.
How many children are there in Italy like little Robert? I ask families to describe their happenings in this post. Are there 1,000, 10,000, or 1,000,000 children? They all must be saved. Let Rosy Bindi, Prodi and Schioppa find the money fast. Let them do an additional finance law. Let them get moving.
