Nicosia_Gaetano_d

We are raising funds for a documentary-film on Father Gaetano Nicosia, the ‘Angel of the lepers’, who dedicated his entire life to the lepers of Ka Ho Village, Macau. This film will be the only proof of an astonishing life. Father Nicosia will soon turn 100 years old and the village is now threatened by new industrial development. Therefore we’d like to act fast.

Please show your support for this invaluable project!

This is the link to our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo:
