In 2020 the association MotoForPeace ONLUS – made up of members of the State Police, Carabinieri, and International Police Corps – chose to travel the roads of five Latin American states starting from Chile, through Argentina, then Paraguay, Bolivia, and ending in Peru after a two-month journey covering almost 13,000 km by motorbike.
The aim of MotoForPeace’s mission, called “Anonymous of Faith 2 – On Mission for the Missions”. – continuation of what was done in 2018 in Southern Africa – is to contribute to the development of projects aimed at making school life more effective and ensuring more efficient medical services. The area of intervention involves populations living in remote areas and rural villages in the southern part of the American continent where the commitment of Catholic missionaries is confronted with realities plagued by poverty, scarcity of resources and social instability.
The project, organised by MotoForPeace ONLUS Italy in collaboration with Dicastery for Integral Human Development | Vatican City was awarded the:

Two months of journey, starting on 29 January from Rome and ending on 30 March in Lima, Peru: 20 people, 14 motorbikes, 2 vans crossing the Cordillera de Los Andes, travelling through endless Patagonia to the north, in the forests of Bolivia to the highlands land of the Incas.
In 2018, we documented the mission to Southern Africa and today we have strengthened our collaboration with MotoForPeace by sharing its goals and the purpose of the motorbike raid, becoming its Media Partner for the South America 2020 expedition.
