Now every Italian – no matter their disability – can have fun in the sun and enjoy a day at the beach.

That’s because Pope Francis has just volunteered to pay a year’s worth of rent towards Work of Love; an organization that manages a private section of the Little Madonna beach exclusively for people with disabilities.

For the last five years, Work of Love has helped their beach – located 17 miles south of Rome – become the only section of Little Madonna that is fully equipped to accommodate people with disabilities. The volunteer-based organization has installed boardwalks, ramps, wheelchair transportation, and water vehicles that are all designed to give disabled people a pleasant beach experience.

Pope Francis, who donated an undisclosed amount of money, reportedly contributed enough funds to pay off the beach’s rent for a year, and to support their other endeavors and financial needs.

According to CNN, the organization expressed “enthusiasm and astonishment” over the pontiff’s generous donation.
