The Society of African Missions is dedicated to serving the peoples of Africa and people of African descent around the world. We hope your visit to our website will tell you more about the SMA, about Africa and its people, and interest you in supporting our missionaries and their communities in Africa.
Central Africa still in turmoil
The suffering of Holy Week will find an echo in the lives of thousands of Central Africans as they continue to endure the ongoing violence in their country. Villages and towns have been attached and many destroyed. People have fled into the bush to escape the Selaka and anti-balaka forces.
Boubou is one of the villages destroyed in the ongoing fighting. The villagers have fled, many to the Catholic Mission for shelter.
Bishop Nestor Nongo-Aziagbia SMA was caring for up to 58,000 displaced people at one stage. This figure has now reduced to about 30,000. To help provide for our sisters and brothers suffering in Bossangoa diocese - Christian and Muslim - click here.
