December 28, 2023

This morning when I woke up, this spectacle appeared to my eyes through the curtains, pushing me out of bed onto the terrace to immortalize this moment of grace.

An inexpressible feeling of gratitude filled my whole being. This touching sky seemed to me a clear sign to appreciate the beauty and generosity of the Universe which, despite our mistakes and unconsciousness, still trusts us and inspires me to recognize the duty of responsibility I have towards all that is manifest, LIFE.

This realization was followed by a sudden need to express my gratitude to all of you, friends, team, partners, sponsors, donors for your trust and donations during all these years.

As a good omen for the New Year 2024, every donation will be matched by a sponsor until January 31st.

I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart!

As a gift, I’d like to share with you the story of the «Outside Time» days called EPAGOMENOI, which began on December 28, according to Egyptian mythology. The intrinsic message you’ll find at the end….

“Ancient Egypt: RA, the deity of the Sun, punishes NUT, goddess of Heaven, for having united with GEB, god of Earth, without his consent, by becoming pregnant. (Nut and Geb were brothers). Her curse was: «You shall not bear this child on any day of the year».
THOT, god of Wisdom and friend of NUT, solved the problem in an unorthodox way: he invited the god of the MOON to play checkers, with the prize for each game being one seventieth of the time of each moonlight. THOT won enough games to reunite five days, allowing NUT to give birth to her children during these days «OUT OF TIME», thus escaping RA’s curse.

These five «Ou of Time» days are the perfect time to allow your projects to manifest, to ignite the spark of your creative efforts, perhaps the fruit of forbidden forces, which are now free to see the Light.. If you have a dream, a project or a wish, this is the right time to sow the seeds and propel them forward with all your strength, thanks to this propitious period for their realization.

Write your letter of intents passionately, be aware that these days are unique and be grateful that they exist.
That’s what the EPAGOMENOI days are all about: extra time, so that many positive things can happen

Best wishes for an Accomplished 2024.

Message from the Founder

On my way, I met Aldo, a remarkable Italian doctor who for 30 years has dedicated his free time to caring for remote indigenous communities, without any official help. To my question about the impact of these solitary actions, he replied: I chose to make small projects, exceptionally well. Like the hummingbird’…. I immediately identified myself and Friends of Humanity was born from this call for solidarity towards the most vulnerable people by listening to their needs and bringing together tangible solutions. The status of women has always been dear to my heart as well as the access to education, hence the selection of the projects. Friends of Humanity is just a drop in the ocean and like the hummingbird I know that this drop of water can make a difference where it’s lacking. This is how my mission and vision come together.
