The survival of living...

Pascal DJEUMEGUED - Priest Associate from Cameroon, currently studying in Canada.

Over the last few days, I have received many images and a video from the people of Mora, Kourgui and Amchidé, where I worked as a priest. I have kept in touch with those who have access to an Android phone to exchange information via WhatsApp. The images bear witness to the water shortage during this dry season. This situation is cyclical and recurs every year. The conditions they face are extremely difficult. This situation prompts us to reflect on the climatic consequences of the Anthropocene (the time during which human activity has had a substantial impact on our planet). It is also an opportunity to pray for our government, asking for greater social justice and respect for human dignity. 

I'm sharing this information with you so that you can pray for our country, which is on the brink of implosion, and for these people.​
