My name is Raffaele Garofalo I’m 21 years old and was born and grew up in Cologne (Germany). Two and a half years ago I started to study catholic theology in Bonn (Germany) and decided to become a catholic priest. I’ve met the Scalabrini community in my hometown and they told me about the work in the Scalabrini Centre Cape Town with the refugees. After seeing the growing discussions about refugees who are entering Germany I asked for an experience as an Intern. I will be part of the Interns for one year as an All-rounder.
It is my first time in South Africa and I’m really impressed of the culture and the country. I’m looking forward to see more about Cape Town and learn more about the situation of the refugees in this wonderful country!
