Help refugees fleeing Lord’s Resistance Army, pleads Congo bishop

January 05, 2010

Following a rampage by the Lord’s Resistance Army that left hundreds dead, a parish ransacked, and over 300 abducted, a bishop in the northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo is pleading for assistance for 2,000 refugees. “The population is not assisted by anyone,” says Bishop Julien Andavo Mbia of Isiro-Niangara. “Once again, the LRA rebels have sown death and destruction … Defenseless people die without any guilt. I am sending out an SOS to anyone who can help these poor people.”
