Last week, we received some photographs from Bishop Isesomo of North Kivu Diocese in DR Congo, showing how the diocese has been using some of the funds received through the CMSI Covid-19 Response Appeal.
£1000 was transferred to North Kivu last month, some of which has been used by the Mothers' Union for a mask-making programme to support local health clinics.
We give thanks for the example of our partners in North Kivu Diocese. Despite their own daily challenges, God's people continue to share His love and hope in the midst of significant suffering: the Church is truly at the centre of the crisis response.
Please continue to pray for all of CMSI's Global Partners as they respond to the needs of vulnerable communities, where the impacts of C-19 lockdown measures have been felt particularly keenly.
