‘Working with the Catholic Church to support Fragile States in Africa’


The Catholic Church is the largest non-government provider of education and healthcare in the world, running 221,000 schools attended by over 61 million pupils and 35,000 charity and healthcare centres. This includes in some of the world’s most fragile states, where the Church’s network extends to hard-to-reach communities where it has a long-established, trusted presence that is largely uninterrupted, even during times of conflict.

The UK Embassy to the Holy See organized a few days ago an interesting symposium to look into how development actors, donors can better partner with the Catholic Church to provide education and healthcare in some of world’s fragile states.

Solidarity with South Sudan had a special session with the witness of Sr Esperance Bamiriyo, SCM, a former principal at the CHTI in Wau.

Thanks to the UK Embassy to the Holy See for the usual attention to this important topic.
