The president of Caritas Central African Republic has strongly condemned the Good Friday killing of a priest in the diocese of Bossangoa.
Bishop Nestor Azagbya Nongo of Bossangoa and three diocesan priests were kidnapped by former-Seleka rebels. They were later freed by African peacekeepers.
Over 41,000 people once sought sanctuary in the cathedral in Bossangoa from the conflict. Now they can return to their homes in safety. The fear has gone, but now the community must rebuild.
People in the Central African Republic need tools, seeds, medicine, shelter and help getting their children back into school as they look to rebuild their lives after months of conflict.
Conflict has gripped the Central African Republic for over a year. In recent months Muslims have been particulalrly targeted. The Caritas supported Inter-faith platform travels to Bangassou, where Christian and Muslim are still co-existing.
Tens of thousands of Muslims have been forced from their homes in the central African Republic. The Catholic Church is often habouring them and organising their evacuation to saftey like in the town of Berberati.
Caritas Internationalis is launching a huge recovery effort in the Central African Republic after months of turmoil have left the country devastated. Caritas has launched an appeal to provide food, shelter, education and healthcare to those in need inside the country.
