In his address to the new health personnel, the Local Ordinary of South Sudan’s Wau Diocese who doubles as the Apostolic Administrator of Rumbek Diocese also identified the deficiency of the value of being humane in the 10-year-old country saying, people “in various communities do not care about each other due to lack of humanity.”
“We are in a very new born country, even education is not so much but we put an attitude of being proud first and other aspects that will not help us to serve our society better,” Bishop Remijio said about South Sudan that remains the world’s newest nation.
As new graduates in the field of health, the member of the Comboni Missionaries said, “What people are expecting from you is to make a difference and I am sure you are ready to do that.”
He went on to advice the new health personnel to “forget pride and follow the ethics” they learned during the duration of their training at the Catholic institution.
“A health worker is like a gate that welcomes all people without discrimination,” Bishop Remijio told the graduating midwives and nurses.
CHTI is one of the projects of the Catholic Church-based humanitarian alliance, Solidarity with South Sudan (SSS), “an initiative of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) and the Union of Superiors General (USG) … born in response to a request from the Catholic Bishops of Sudan (and South Sudan)” under the Sudan Catholic Bishops' Conference (SCBC).
The Wau-based CHTI, SSS has posted on its website, “trains young South Sudanese men and women to be nurses and midwives. They will return to their communities and help build a more just and peaceful society through their compassion and care for the sick.”
