A Call for Prayers, Fraternal Closeness, and Solidarity to the People of Sudan from the Office of Episcopal Vicar

The conflict, which began on April 15, has displaced almost 1.1 million people internally and into neighboring countries, living them without basic needs, the office of the Episcopal Vicar for Refugees, Immigrants, Migrants, IDPs, in the Catholic Diocese of Tombura – Yambio has launched an appeal inviting all Diocesan personnel and people of goodwill to donate Food, shelter and other essential aid, health services, and kind attitudes and receptions, to open doors of all Catholics Schools including the senior Seminary and admit pupils and students without charges.

In a letter signed by Fr. Dominic Agbia Sasa, the Episcopal Vicar for refugees, Immigrants, Migrants, and IDPs, directed that “during the coming Pentecost Sunday celebration all over our diocese, second collections are carried out to support our brothers and sisters in Sudan. I ask the Humekodabe Foundation plus the Finance Department, to assist in awareness of this appeal and subsequent follow-up of the resource’s mobilization”.

The CDTY expresses their fraternal closeness and solidarity to Archbishop Michael Didi, His Lordship Trile Tombe of El Obeid, Auxiliary Bishop of Khartoum H.L. Daniel Adwok, Cardinal Zubeir Wako, Archbishop Louis, the Apostolic Nuncio to Sudan, all the Church personnel, entire Christian Faithful in Sudan as well as to all the people of God who live in Sudan. With them, we share the sufferings of all the severely affected people.

The letter further explained that the “Archdiocese of Khartoum and Diocese of El-Obeid, continue to bear the pressure as more people knock at the door seeking support, some are lost in the wilderness, trapped in the bombarded city of Khartoum and other major cities”.

In the letter shared with Rurugene online, the office of the Episcopal Vicar stated that “they endeavor to extend a helping hand, to be a sign of hope to families grappling with the effects of the civil war in the different parts of the Archdiocese and El-Obeid and beyond as part of our call to Christian charity and evangelization”.
