Why are there still famines?

Dear friends,

The past eleven months has been a very unusual period in Sudan. Given the social and political unrest in Hong Kong at the present moment, what has been happened in Sudan in the immediate past period could be most inspiring indeed.

A short description of the events that happened over the past eleven months in Sudan was the dictator who had ruled Sudan for the past 30 years had been forced out. The country is presently under military rule but a transition agreement has been reached between the military and the people of Sudan.  According to the agreement, the military will hand over their power to a civilian government in two years. Perhaps it would be too optimistic to assume it would be all smooth sailing in Sudan from now on but a least there is now an opportunity for the Salesians and the other NGO (non-government organizations) to help to rebuild this war torn country. 

The Salesian fathers and sisters have been working in Sudan since 1982, i.e. 37 years ago. There had been many civil wars between the various factions over these years and the Salesians had gone through a lot of sufferings and setbacks during this period but they never give up. Let’s pray a lasting peace is finally coming to this war torn country and they can finally reach out to the people in need in this country. We hope we can count on your generous support like we have had from you in the former years.

Here’s a news clip on YouTube filed by BBC:

Matthew 25.( 31-40) Then the King will say to the people on his right, . . . ."I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me."  The righteous will then answer him, "When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? . . . . When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visited you?"  The King will reply, "I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did it for me!"
