Pope Francis to visit Central African Republic

The Pope’s visit to the  Central African Republic is an important event for all of those who, like EMERGENCY, have been working in the country for years. Finally, media attention will be drawn to the country that went through a horrendous civil war (still a real menace for the civilian population). As in any armed conflict, the overwhelming majority of victims are children who are the ones who suffer the most from violence and poverty. EMERGENCY hopes that the peaceful message Pope Francis is bringing to the Continent will be heard: the Central African Republic is in need of peace and hope.
