Headline: ASIA/AFGHANISTAN – From Prague to Kabul, a fundraiser for the needy, a sign of spiritual communion of the Church
Kabul – A fundraiser which began in Prague reached the church of Kabul through the staff of the Czech embassy. This is the initiative carried out by the parish community of St. Gotthard, in Prague, led by the parish priest Fr. Milos Szabo, in support of the poor, destitute and most vulnerable Afghans. This is what Fr. Giovanni Scalese, Barnabite priest, at the head of the Missio sui iuris in Afghanistan reports in a note sent to Agenzia Fides: “In that parish, during the month of January, the faithful prayed for this Country and made a collection for the poor of our Mission. The result of the donations was entrusted to Czech diplomats in Kabul, but due to the rules for the containment of Covid-19, it was only possible to organize a meeting in June”.
