How do aid agencies fund their support of people displaced by rebellion? Cooperation. Congo is one example of countries suffering from rebellion, “murder and mayhem.” The Irish Jesuit News recently posted that the “Irish Jesuit Mission Office...is linking up with all the mission offices of Europe in a joint effort to meet the challenging chaos of the Congo.” More about the appeal, the role of Jesuit Refugee Services [JRS] educating the displaced children and several photos give a feel for what is addressed in the Congo alone.
Also: Early in January an Irish Jesuit began to coordinate Jesuit rapid response for “the tortured land of Syria.” Two informative websites are offered in the announcement.
