AFRICA/CENTRAL AFRICA - Twelve thousand refugees in the Cathedral of Bambari, the Bishop's appeal to Fides
Bangui (Agenzia Fides) - "We have welcomed at least 12,000 people in the Saint Joseph Cathedral who are still totally without any assistance" says to Fides Agency His Exc. Mgr. Eduard Mathos, Bishop of Bambari, in the Central African Republic, where the violence of the Seleka militia have forced most of the inhabitants to flee. "Some NGOs have come to see the situation, but so far no humanitarian aid has arrived. Everything is lacking. Only the Red Cross is bringing water", continued the Bishop. "I launch an appeal for action to be taken now in order to prevent a humanitarian disaster", concludes Mgr. Mathos. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 01/07/2014)
