Annulliamo la Distanza was officially born in Florence on 7 October 1997 when a group of friends decided to get directly involved in the support and care of children that they were already sponsoring from a distance.
Since then, with a total commitment and important work Annulliamo la Distanza decided to commit itself to fight hunger, disease and other hardships that are threatening the future of children in every part of the world.

We recognize ourselves in the motto “Children First”, because we believe that this is the way to give a better future to children in developing countries, to reduce the gap between the rich and poor countries, to cancel the distance between the different souls on this planet.



Our organisation is run by the Board of Directors, the Auditors Committee, and the Arbitrations. As stated in article 11 of our Statute, the Board of Directors consists of five members (President, Vice-President and three Directors) elected by the organisation’s members every three years
