The CNEWA Connection

One of the most important areas in which CNEWA helps to care for the marginalized is in the Apostolic Vicariate of Harar. Poverty is rampant and unemployment is high. The local church seeks to give families a sense of love and security, but widespread abuse of khat complicates this situation.

One place where young people receive shelter from this growing problem is at the St. Clair Orphanage. For a number of years, CNEWA has provided the Capuchins with funds to support the orphanage, which offers children a healthy and secure environment, pastoral support, education, attention and love.

The friars care for more than 40 children, and CNEWA is a vital partner, fostering in these children a sense of dignity and hope.

With khat addiction spreading among the poor and the unemployed in Harar, the vicariate is seeking more help from CNEWA and our benefactors to provide clothes, shoes and study materials for the children in the months ahead.
