(RNS) Congolese Sister Angelique Namaika was herself displaced by the violence in 2009. She had been living in Dungu in the province of Orientale but was forced to flee the Lord's Resistance Army’s persistent attacks.


  1. While I was teaching in Liberia, I learned many things from students who had been refugees or displaced persons. 1. Each of them has a unique story. 2. The only real solution is to bring peace to their country or region. 3. While the search for a real solution is going on, the urgent needs of individual refugees and DPs can’t wait.

    I’m glad to see recognition going to someone like Sister Namaika who is addressing those needs. Good luck to her.
