On the occasion to commemorate 400 years since the death of St. Camillus, the Father and Founder of the Camillian Religious Order, The Roman Province of the Camillians, in conjunction with all other provinces of the Order initiated a number of projects in honor of the works of the Camillians spanning over 4 centuries.

Fr. Giovanni Aquaro (RIP) was then entrusted with the coordination of the Provincial Committee, and it is in this capacity that he helped build the health facility adjacent to the Br. Dominic Nursery and Primary Schools, in Watamu, near Malindi in Kenya. The health facility has been built in honor of the Servant of God, Nicola D’Onofrio, a young Camilian student whose canonization process is underway.

Camillian Fathers have a solid collaboration with JAMBO WATOTO, an Association that has been in operation in Malindi since «November 23, 2009» in response to the wish of a group of friends who decided to come together to give a future to the children of the district of Watamu. .

The group wanted to assist the hardship hit children, offering them a growth opportunity through the provision of education, medical care and ability to grow a career in life. We thank all who generously contributed to this honorable initiative through Fr. Giovanni Aquaro, former Head Chaplain at the San Giovanni Hospital at the Lateran in Rome. Fr. Giovanni passed on to be with the Lord in early 2017. May his soul rest in eternal peace, Amen
