Juba, 28 November, 2020 / 4:30 pm (ACI Africa).
The Society of Missionaries of Mary Immaculate (MMI) ministering in South Sudan’s Archdiocese of Juba have, with support from Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD), provided food and torchlights to hundreds of flood-affected populations occupying a parish compound in Juba.
“I am extremely glad to inform you that with the help of CAFOD Organization, we have distributed food and torchlights to 100 flood-affected families,” the Parish Priest of St. Francis of Assisi, Fr. Rayappan Jayaprakash, who is the host, told ACI Africa Thursday, November 26, a day after providing the relief services.
Opened October last year, St. Francis of Assisi Church in Nyuwa is a newly established parish of the Archdiocese of Juba. It is 15 km away from South Sudan’s capital, Juba on the way to Terekeka town.
“Our Parish covers five villages consisting of mostly poor and underprivileged people in places such as Nyuwa, Bori, Molabor, Poitti and Kwerkek,” Fr. Rayappan told ACI Africa.
