About 2,000 displaced people, who had been welcomed in San Salvatore parish, in the 2nd district of Bangui return home after three years.
Don Paternal Zolo, vicar of San Salvatore parish, said that the return
of the internally displaced persons was financially supported by Caritas
Bangui and every family received a subsidy proportional to the size of
"A single person received the sum of 50,000 CFA francs,
75,000 francs for a medium-sized family and bigger families received
150,000. It is a sum that allows them to at least rent a house", said
the priest, according to the news sent to Fides.
"During his stay in Bangui, Pope Francis had promised to make a gesture
for the displaced persons to facilitate their return. This promise has
turned into reality thanks to Caritas" said an anonymous source to the
Reseau des Journalistes pour le Droits de l'Homme (RJDH).
