Message from the Great Lakes Region

Young People from St Theresa’s, Princes Risborough sent messages of support to the young people of DRC, Rwanda and Burundi as they gathered for their conference to build peace and reconciliation among the different communities.

They received the following message from the Conference:

“Dear young people of England and Wales at the Parish of St. Theresa,

We, the young people of Burundi, DRC and Rwanda, united in Bujumbura in Burundi from 29th July to 2nd August, thank you for your spirit of solidarity, transferred through CAFOD, towards the young people of our troubled sub-region.

We bear witness to you sincerely that these few days have been incredibly rich and beneficial. We are engaged to carry out concrete actions in our region towards peace, justice, forgiveness and reconciliation within our families, communities, countries and our sub-region. We hope to be able to change the face of our region and count on your continued support. We entrust CAFOD with our perspectives of the future and are sure that they will be echoed to you.

May God bless you so that you may continue this work towards durable peace in the world and we keep you in our prayers so that your actions for child soldiers may really be effective.”
