Dakar, 17 November, 2022 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops of the four-nation Conference in West Africa are concerned about the “high cost of living” in their respective countries.
In their collective statement at the end of their Annual Ordinary Session, members of the Joint Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Senegal, Mauritania, Cape-Verde, and Guinea-Bissau (CESMCVGB) express their solidarity with families experiencing hardships.
“We are concerned about the current economic crisis which is affecting the lives of many people due to the high cost of living,” the members of CESMCVGB say in their message shared with ACI Africa Tuesday, November 15.
They invite the government to “consolidate its efforts to ensure that the needs of the population, especially the most vulnerable, are better taken care of.”
The Catholic Bishops further urge citizens of the four West African nations to “show more solidarity with those affected.”
