44 youths from Sudan attending WYD thanks to generosity of Austrians

.- The generosity of 750 Austrian young people participating in World Youth Day in Sydney has made it possible for 44 Sudanese youths to attend the event for the first time.

According to the Italian news agency SIR, the Sudanese youths come from every diocese in the country, and their dream has come true thanks to the solidarity of the Austrians who responded to a call by Aid to the Church in Need to raise money for the African young people.

“It is the first time in the history of the Sudan that we have a delegation of young people from all over the country, represented all of the Catholic dioceses,” said Combiano missionary Celestino Prevedello, WYD coordinator in Sudan.

During the “Days in the Dioceses,” the Sudanese young people have met up with their fellow countrymen whose families left the country during the civil war and settled in Australia.

The Archbishop of Khartoum, Cardinal Gabriel Zubier Wako, is at WYD with the Sudanese youth and will celebrate a Mass with the Sudanese community of Australia at the end of WYD.
