“The Church in Africa has evangelization as a priority, but evangelization always goes hand in hand with social help. When the church proclaims the word of God, we can say it’s also at the forefront in the struggle for health.”

The Pope presented the preliminary document of the Synod during his trip to Cameroon. It’s a document that reviews the situation of the Church in Africa, criticizes the powers that are plundering raw materials from Africa without reciprocity and calls on Catholics to promote dialogue with Islam to promote peace on the continent.
