Ethiopia, 10th July 2018. The Catholic Agency for Overseas Development or CAFOD pledges to continue supporting Association of Member Ecumenical Conferences of Eastern Africa or AMECEA Justice, Peace and Caritas Department for the next three years.
The support means that their planned activities will be implemented, says AMECEA Justice Peace and Caritas Department Coordinator Fr Paul Mung'athia Igweta, AMECEA Online News reported.
He says AMECEA will engage the nations Justice Peace and Caritas Coordinators to ensure that the implementation trickles down to the dioceses in the region.
He appreciates CAFOD for supporting the department since 2014 when AMECEA Justice and Peace became a full department.
CAFOD is the Catholic aid agency for England and Wales, an international aid organization working to alleviate poverty and suffering in developing countries.
Among AMECEA countries, CAFOD is present in Eritrea Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda and Zambia.
