    Help and assistance is greatly needed in South Sudan where most charities and aid has left. Bishop Eduardo Kussala in diocese of Tombura-Yambio in South Sudan is in dire need of assistance in the area of Juba where fighting and bloodshed is taking lives of thousands. Emergency humanitarian aid is in great need. Over 7,000 innocent people have taken refuge and are cramped in St. Paul’s Major Seminary during this persecution and bloody war. Starvation and sickness are at hand.

    Also we have Dr Tom Catena (only doctor for thousands) at Our Lady of Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains giving his life and fighting for survival of his people. Day by day many flee into caves for protection from a war torn violence. Again food and medicine are desperately needed. Fear is our brothers and sisters will die without our help.
    Prayer is needed.
