Chiúre (Cabo Delgado). In the district of Chiúre, the province of Cabo Delgado, the Community of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians of Chiúre in St. John Bosco Province (MOZ), is a meeting point for many displaced people from the conflict zones, who are asking for help. Listening to the newness of the Holy Spirit, the community is facing this contemporary challenge by taking on the new face of mission.

Don Bosco Elementary School in Chiúre has become an open house for inclusive education, an educational environment in which activities and experiences of peace and harmony are offered for displaced teachers and students.

Mary Mazzarello Promotional Center welcomes young mothers for psychosocial accompaniment, occupational therapy, helping them to give new hope to life and the future.

With young people, the community is committed to being an evangelizing presence in the various resettlement centers. It organizes catechesis and the insertion of displaced persons in Christian communities near the camps for displaced persons. When temperatures are lower and there is greater discomfort for the elderly and children, they are offered clothes to shield them from the cold, food kits, and above all, hope and joy are given to the children. Children continue to chase their dream: to study. They themselves ask for notebooks, pens, school uniforms and, as is natural for all children, even a ball to play with.

On the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus the community spent a day with the displaced in the Meculane camp celebrating Jesus, Bread of Life. They shared bread, food, and new energy to walk, work, study, dream, and to continue to believe that in the midst of the country’s instability something new is being born. One day of life becomes shared bread!

The FMA strongly feel the call to respond to the emergency and to concretely help young people, so that they have formation and employment. The certainty of Mary’s presence in the midst of this resilient people, the impulse of the da mihi animas, cetera tolle and of I entrust them to you of the Founders Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello, the life of the youn people and children make the Salesian mission new every day.

A network of solidarity between the Educating Communities of the Province, the benefactors, and the friends who are the Good Samaritans for these poor and defenseless sisters and brothers, are the concrete sign of walking with them in search of a safe place collaborating in a future of hope for the Country.
