ACN will present it’s ‘Africa Update’ report highlighting the explosion of violence that is reeking havoc across Sub-Saharan Africa. The report will be launched in October in the Houses of Parliament.
A surge of militant activity by extremist groups has lead to a sudden increase in attacks on Christians with priests and people killed, villages pilages and entire communities forced to flee. For ACN, Africa is a priority for aid – emergency support (shelter, food and trauma counselling) and pastoral help (support for priests and sisters and lay people communicating the love of God through word and sacrament.
We look forward to marking #RedWednesday with you.
