Goma, Dem. Rep. of Congo - At the school Floribert Bwana Chui, school of mercy and peace

At the school Floribert Bwana Chui, at the edge of the huge refugee camp of Mugunga, near Goma, in North Kivu, where thousands fled the militias and the ethnic conflicts that causes bloodshed in that region of the Congo, classes has resumed. 


Dedicated to Floribert, a member of the Community of Sant'Egidio of Goma who refused a proposal of bribery and was killed for it, for whom it is opening the diocesan phase of the process of beatification for martyrdom, the school gathers about 200 students divided into
six primary courses.
At Bwana Chui school they learn to read and write, but also the importance and beauty of mercy and peace, the values for which Floribert spent his life.
