Headline: AFRICA/ANGOLA – Missionaries help with registration at the residents’ registration office
Kikolo – “An identity card is precious, because without it one does not exist for the state and society”, says in a letter to Fides Father Renzo Adorni, priest of the Society for African Missions, who lives and works as a missionary in Angola. “It is an important service for our people, who enable the many farmers who have emigrated from the countryside to the city to have an identity. In their village these people did not need an identity card because everyone knew everyone. Up to 22 December about 7,700 identity cards were registered”.
