“Prioritize Transparency and Do Not Misuse the Donations”, Says the Vicar General of CDTY to Project Executors
By Arkangelo Rangabia
The Vicar General of the Catholic Diocese of Tambura Yambio has called on project executors working under Diocesan institutions to always prioritize transparency and accountability to the donors. ‘’We take the responsibility to account for each and every donation, failure to do so, will lead to more sorrows and sadness’’ he said.
Speaking at the launching of the Borehole at St. Jude Catholic Chapel in Yambio County Western Equatoria State on Wednesday 10th May 2023 Rev. Fr. Thomas Bagbiowia the Vicar general in the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio stressed that partners not to chop the donations offered to benefit the suffered communities adding that the local community always suffer the consequences of un-impacted funded projects. ‘’proper accountability has to be done at all costs because when it is not done those who suffer are rather the community’’ he said.
Rev. Fr. Bagbiowia argued the local community to follow the measures set aside to guide the borehole, and committee to sustain the functionality of the water point. ‘’ the donors and CODEP partners have done their part, our roles are to administer, manage, maintain in order to sustain the water point for our own benefit’’
He called on the local authority to work in collaboration with the Chapel administration to sustain this project.
The vicar assured the partners of their proper accountability and transparency in delivering the proposed services expected of them to the beneficiaries adding that other partners should give an evidential accountability that lies with the project’s impact on the community in order to acquire blessings from God rather than curses. ‘’We take the responsibility to account for each and every donation, failure to do so, will lead to more sorrows and sadness’’ he said.
The launching of one of the seven proposed hand dug well took place at St. Jude Catholic Chapel under St. Augustine Catholic Parish on Wednesday 10th May 2023 where hundreds of community members gathered to witness the launching of the hand-dug well.
This project is designed to construct at least seven hand-dug wells in different communities in the Diocese where it had been hard for the communities to access clean water for better health. The occasion ended up with a blessing of the well by Vicar General Rev. Thomas Bagbiowia.
