Although some of these items were distributed for the IDPs in general, our focus, however, was on the displaced families who rented houses; they are paying significant money for rent and many of them do not have any income.
We have just got a license to open a primary school, also for free; we rented a place and hope it will be for the benefit of the IDPs. The aim of this is to show the IDPs the loving care of the church.
Also, we were not prepared for this kind of work, nor have we skills to deal with it. Most shocking was the unexpected death of 10 sisters (most of them were in their 70s) in a very short period of time (three months).
Since winter, some of our sisters have been preparing 400 children for First Communion in six groups. The last First Communion celebration was on July 12.
The main aim of our work is to make sure that IDPs know that they are not ignored or abandoned by the local church.
