As goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, Roberto Bolle had visited Sudan in the past. At the beginning of this month he has visited the Central African Republic for a week (an experience, he says, that left him "deeply affected and scarred"), sharing his diary with IoDonna magazine, the weekly for Corriere della Sera. Bolle danced for Africa last night in Rome, at Auditorium Conciliazione, and tickets had been sold out forever.
But those who are willing to help -- UNICEF provides anti-malaria medication, promotes HIV prevention, digs wells to provide clean drinkable water among other things -- can do so by donating money over to UNICEF.it website, or by calling the Italian toll free number 800-7450000.
From Bolle's diary entry for the final day of his travel:
"Coming home to a Milan that now looks as fake as a reality TV show. The one thing I can do to make this trip complete is to go back to my work, and dance for Africa"
