Torit, 12 May, 2021 / 7:00 pm (ACI Africa).
A fire that ravaged the boarding section of St. Daniel Comboni Boarding Primary School in South Sudan’s Torit Diocese over the week has left dozens of learners at the school with no place to sleep, the management of the Catholic institution has told ACI Africa.
In the Tuesday, May 11 interview, the school’s Head Teacher, Br. James Othembi called on well-wishers to help in getting the school with over 500 pupils back to its feet.
“If there is any willing person or organization that can donate to us for the construction or renovation of the dormitories and providing a water facility, we will really appreciate it,” Br. Othembi said.
The member of St. Martin de Porres Brothers explained, “At the moment, more than 70 children are spending their nights in classrooms because their dormitory was completely destroyed in the fire.”
