Fleeing war, refugees in South Africa find Comfort in arms of Church
Project “Refugee Pastoral Care,” carried out by the Archdiocese of Durban and supported byAid to the Church in Need (ACN) since 2013, is vital for the refugees in Durban. The project’s aim is to provide pastoral and social services to refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants with a view to restoring their lost dignity, faith and hope, by providing them with shelter, involving them in healing workshops, social cohesion programs and also to ensure that justice prevails in all matters affecting them, through lobbying and advocacy.
That project also involves other important programs such as paying school fees for refugee children, provision of food and shelter to the refugee newcomers, teaching English to those who come from the francophone regions for integration purposes, and teaching IsiZulu, the local language, among many other services.
