“We need to stand with the Association for Saint Mary here in the Diocese. We need to support them with ideas because they are doing a lot of work for the vulnerable people,” Fr. Luciano said and added, “These facemasks now in the market are around SSP.500 ($1) and our vulnerable people cannot afford them.”
“People need to support this association so that they make more of these facemasks to reach many people,” the Priest said.
Meanwhile, the Health Department of South Sudan’s Catholic Diocese of Rumbek in partnership with the Sign of Hope organization has distributed food items to needy people in Malou Village of Lakes state.
According to Good News Radio of Rumbek Diocese, the food items offered included maize flour, beans, cooking oil, salt and soap.
Sign of Hope field communication officer, Thomas Chol, said, “This is the second phase of the project activity in the area targeting the needy people in the Catholic Diocese.”
“I believe the food distributed will improve the lives of people in our Diocese,” he said.
Area Chief, Joseph Akech, thanked the Catholic Diocese of Rumbek for providing the villagers with food and non-food items and appealed for more support, saying, “I wish those supporting you to assist us in increasing the food ratio in the next phase of the distribution because the food distributed is not enough for the vulnerable people in this area.”
This is the second time for the Sign of Hope Health Care Center to distribute food items to the needy through the health department of the Catholic Diocese of Rumbek.
The Organization that is working to improve the human rights situation in South Sudan has partnered with the South Sudanese Catholic Diocese to launch a project in Rumbek Central Prison, where convicts and mentally ill people are provided with food and non-food items.
