DWA CUAMM: Remembering Don Luigi Mazzucato

On 6th November 2015 Doctors with Africa CUAMM announced the death of Don Luigi Mazzucato, director of CUAMM from 1955 to 2008, and an old and true friend of Medicus Mundi International: 

"Don Luigi was a man of great intellectual stature, with an extraordinary ability to reconcile prophecy and realism. He was a strong leader and especially a teacher of life for everybody. In 1955 he took up the challenge of leading CUAMM, working with dedication, commitment and with the tendency to seek more the positive than the negative in every person and in every events. He had to overcome many trials and difficulties during the 50 years at the helm of CUAMM."

Don Dante Carraro, director of Doctors with Africa CUAMM, remembers him: "Under his black dress, accompanied by the black cap, there was a rainbow of harmonious colors and an intense personality of a rich and full life. Some of colors of his rainbow were: the poor, that Don Luigi are the heritage of God; people, who always knew to listen and put in the middle; Providence and trust God’s plan, at all times; and, finally, prayer, cool, clear spring of his life."
