Pope Francis Rents a Beach for Disabled People to Enjoy

via CNN:

Pope Francis is paying a year’s rent for a private beach near Rome so a charity can help people with disabilities enjoy the sea and sun, according to the group that manages the program.

The group Work of Love has rented a portion of the Little Madonna beach since 2012 and outfitted it with boardwalks, ramps and water vehicles to provide access to people in wheelchairs and those with other issues that make a day at the beach difficult.

Monseigneur Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, told CNN that Francis gave the charity an undisclosed sum to “support the project that helps disabled youth and in particular to cover the cost of the annual rent for the beach known as the Little Madonna.”
