After having read the document Aqua fons vitae: Orientations on water, symbol of the cry of the poor and the cry of the Earth released in 2020 by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, in May we wrote to the Cardinal Peter K. A. Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery, asking for his blessing and patronage to “Well4Africa”, a social initiative of the OFS.
His Eminence Cardinal Turkson was so kind to answer us, as letter states, expressing his encouragement to this beautiful Franciscan commitment and his thanks to all “Well4Africa” benefactors, as well as suggesting, when appropriate, to involve local Church through their bishops, in the context of “Well4Africa” water projects.
It is a great step to the social initiative “Well4Africa” which opens us a way to a more active cooperation with local churches throughout the continent of Africa. Thanks be to God!
