Catholic journalists and communicators met with hundreds of refugees at the "Kyangwali Refugee Settlement" in Uganda, a place that hosts about 140,000 migrants, mainly from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and Somalia.
The visit took place on Friday, July 14, as part of a workshop on "Effective Coverage and Information on Refugees and Migrants" organized by SIGNIS Africa and promoted by the Uganda Episcopal Conference and the Dicastery for the Service of Integral Human Development.
In this inspiring gathering, the communicators were able to talk with some local civil and ecclesial authorities, among them was the priest chaplain, Fr. Josemarie L. W Kizito, who lives inside this large refugee camp at "St. Patrick's Centre for Integral Development", where the communicators were received with joy by hundreds of faithful.
The workshop organized by SIGNIS was held from July 10-16 in Kampala, capital of Uganda, and was aimed primarily at Catholic journalists, media professionals and members of civil society involved in the care of Migrants and Refugees.
