Your foundation has given us legs, it has given us arms, it has given us eyes and it has given us a mouth to proclaim the Gospel. For all of this, our heartfelt thanks!” – Bishop Adriano Langa, Mozambique.
After the devastation of the Cyclone Idai, ACN sent an emergency help to Mozambique of 30,000 euros. The Bishop of Beira, Mgr. Claudio Dalla Zuanna thanked ACN for the prompt response. He said that ACN’s help was the first one they received.
But despite the aftermath of the natural disaster, war and violence that has recently devastated the country, Mozambique and the Church there continue to demonstrate great vitality, and the diocese of Inhambane is a good example of this.
“Vocations are blossoming at our seminary. For the first time since it opened, it has 30 future priests; we have never had so many before. Sadly, though, the house they are lodging in was previously a parish house and has very few rooms”, Bishop Adriano Langa of Inhambane explains.
The desire to improve the physical structure of the seminary in Inhambane is one of the reasons that led him to visit the international headquarters of ACN. This is a concrete project, which could now become reality, thanks to the generosity of ACN’s benefactors, a generosity that Bishop Adriano has already experienced in the past with a number of other different aid projects.
“I have come to say ‘many thanks’ to all the benefactors who breathe life into this foundation and who also give life to us. For in fact there are many projects we have carried out and many means of transport we have been able to make use of, such as the vehicles we are using in the diocese, which have come from here, from ACN. All of this has been possible thanks to ACN, which is thereby helping us to proclaim the Gospel. Your foundation has given us legs, it has given us arms, it has given us eyes and it has given us a mouth to proclaim the Gospel. For all of this, our heartfelt thanks!”
