Meet Priest Don Mimmo...

He makes sure every body that is found is buried with dignity.


By finding out about their stories. 

This is Welela's grave. You can see her photograph on the wall.

On the boat that brought her to Lampedusa from Africa, Welela had to fill in the tank with fuel. She was fatally burnt by the gasoline and salt water mix, but stayed onboard while being burned alive, with the desperate hope of reaching her destination.

Don Mimmo found her family and made sure she could rest in peace.
