Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, 

I have been working as a Missionary in South Sudan since 1979, ministering in different places since the war started in 1981.

From 2016 due to fighting and atrocities more and more people have been forced to take refuge in the Refugee Camps in North Uganda. 

People are sick, others physically wounded by guns, other with the scars of the war. When they see us arriving in the Camps and hear that we are people of the church they run to us, for us to pray with them, they bring their sick children for us to lay our hands on them and pray for them. They ask us to continue visiting them, to help them to build a simple shelter for prayer, to put up some poles they will do it themselves but they ask us to provide some carpets to put on it to prevent them from the scourging sun or the rain. 

I thank you with all my heart in the name of our people, for all that you will be able to do to alleviate the suffering of many.

God bless you all.
Very Grateful
Sr. Dorinda Lopes da Cunha
Comboni Missionary Sister

Event details

Comboni Sisters' Friends Prayer

Friends of the Comboni Sisters including the Cenacle of Missionary Prayer Group in Chiswick will be praying and organising activities such as lunches to raise money urgently for Sr. Dorinda's work with the South Sudanese refugees in Uganda. As has been reported on the BBC there is a crisis in progress with the fleeing of the South Sudanese refugees from the war. Hunger, lack of shelter, lack of drinking water and abandonment are reasons why Sr Dorinda needs our prayers and financial support to 'be available to be with the Lord's people when they most need to feel that God cares for them and does not forget them.
The Barn Dance: We are holding a Barn Dance on Saturday 26th May 7pm-11pm at Chiswick Catholic Centre, 2 Dukes Ave. W4 2AE. A real fun family event. £15 per ticket, children free - Buffet included. Every penny goes to Sr. Dorinda's work for the South Sudanese refugees. To buy a ticket please make a donation and add Barn Dance: your name (next ticket number) in the message section.
