Kroonstad, South Africa: ‘Situation of Refugees Painful and Sad’ – Bishop Holiday

“The number of refugee families and individuals, women, men and children in the world and our own country South Africa is a very painful and sad situation,” Bishop Holiday says in his pastoral letter.

He adds, “Brothers and Sisters are having to flee from their country of birth in fear of being killed or from dire injustices of one kind or another. Many do not even make it to the country they are fleeing to for a better life for themselves and families.”

The Catholic Bishop of South Africa’s Kroonstad Diocese says the country that has offered refuge to many is, unfortunately, not giving the refugees a conducive environment to rebuild their respective lives.
