June Appeal

Slavery. We shudder at the word. Unfortunately, many forms of slavery are still devastating parts of our world today. 125 years ago, our founder, Cardinal Charles Lavigerie, conducted an anti-slavery campaign in several European capitals denouncing the practice in Africa and worldwide. His strong message earned him praise as "the apostle of the salves of all Africa." Recently, this anniversary has been the occasion for our missionaries in Eijsu, Ghana, to launch an aggressive educational campaign to fight the modern forms of slavery that still take place - especially among the youth.

A few days ago, I received a letter from Fr. Bill Moroney -- one of our Missionary of Africa priests now working in Nairobi, Kenya, in East Africa. . . Read More>>

MOA helps drill water wells in Tanzania

Water can be gathered, or as some would say ‘harvested’, from below by digging or drilling boreholes to pump it up. It can also be harvested from above in those places where the groundwater would be too deep or maybe hardly existing.

Mbeya, in the East African country Tanzania is one of the many places where one often collects it from above, by harvesting the rains of the rainy seasons. Read More>>

AFRICA, A Natural Treasure

Africa is a land of incredible beauty, natural treasure and unparalleled discovery! Its people - of nearly 60 nations throughout the Continent - are among some of the most diverse cultures and societies in all the world!
