FMSI is donating $ 60,000 for students in South Sudan



German Marists help an Africa's population

02/03/2018: South Sudan

On Feb. 24, the Marist International Solidarity Foundation Onlus For the benefit of children (FMSI) sent $ 48,000 US dollars to South Sudan, as part of a larger sum that will be used for a year’s education and accommodation of 10 students in South Sudan.

They hope the donation, which so far has come from a partnership with the Marist Brothers in Germany, will reach $ 60,000 US dollars.

On Feb. 23, the Church celebrated a day of prayer and fasting for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan, as Pope Francis had requested during his Sunday Angelus on Feb. 4 .

South Sudan is suffering from a prolonged civil war and humanitarian crisis.

The Marist Brothers participate in the Solidarity with South Sudan project, which has five communities in the African country, made up of over 30 members of 23 religious congregations.

It is located in Riimenze, Wau, Yambio and Juba. It was initially set up to train teachers, nurses, midwives, local farmers and community leaders, but for the past year has been having to feed and look after internally displaced people in Riimenze.
