Support Mamfe Flock in Refugee Camps
On 31 December 2017 and new year’s day 2018, I visited a great part of the flock of the diocese of Mamfe who are refugees in various places in Nigeria and Akwaya town. I brought them some supplies for New Year. Their stories are pathetic and the conditions under which they live are appalling. They are scattered all over the place and sleeping on verandas and open space like people without a Homeland. It was a great joy for shepherd and flock to be united again and the happiness of our visit almost moved us to tears.
New year day was full of dancing and rejoicing. We had prayed for peace during the Mass and we all walked into 2018 full of hope. I am appealing to your hearty generosity to keep their hope to the fullest as we pray, trusting in God’s intercession for a peaceful resolve and return to their homelands. Thank you and God’s blessings.
