Since 2009, Linus and Nicola Savino have been hosting children, volunteers, and families, supporting the communication and fundraising campaign of the solidarity SMS at Dynamo Camp. This partnership with Radio Deejay has provided a unique opportunity to share the many inspiring stories of the Camp with listeners.
Alyssa, a 16-year-old from Livorno, shared her experience with Linus and Nicola Savino during a Radio Deejay broadcast. Alyssa spoke about how Dynamo Camp had a profound impact on her life, giving her newfound confidence and self-value. She expressed gratitude for being accepted at the Camp without feeling embarrassed about her blindness, an experience she often encounters in her everyday life. Dynamo Camp helped her embrace her identity and feel empowered.
Other families, such as Stefano and Lara Mattivi, parents of four children, shared their heartwarming journey with Dynamo Camp at the Radio Deejay studios. They spoke about how the Camp allowed them to feel like regular parents, not parents of disabled children. For their children, Mattia and Giacomo, it was a transformative experience to participate in activities just like any other child, while Luca and Federica were able to play carefree without feeling overshadowed by their siblings’ disabilities.
The Di Gregorio family from Casalincontrada had an unforgettable experience at Radio Deejay when they were invited as guests. Dynamo Camp arranged a special trip for them, with meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that Anastasia, who uses a wheelchair, had a comfortable journey. For Riccardo, who is passionate about mythology and constantly reads the Odyssey, the experience was especially exciting. He faced the interview with Linus and Nicola with confidence, sharing how Dynamo Camp helped him overcome challenges and inspired him to say, “I can, despite everything…” or “I can, period!” The entire town of Casalincontrada tuned in to hear Riccardo on the radio, and he was hailed as a hero upon his return to school.
The powerful impact of Dynamo Camp and its inclusive environment is evident through these heartwarming stories shared on Radio Deejay. The Camp continues to touch lives and create unforgettable memories for children and families, showing that with support and love, extraordinary transformations are possible.
