Workshop on psychological trauma in Abyei area

The Council of Catholic Churches in the contested area of Abyei between Sudan and South Sudan is organizing a one-month long workshop on psychological trauma, reconciliation and peace with support from the Catholic Relief Service (CRS).

Speaking to Radio Tamazuj, Rev. Biong Kuol said the workshop targets members of the Catholic Church, youths, pastors, teachers and administrators.

The religious leader pointed out that the previous wars in the area left many citizens psychologically traumatized, saying it was important to organize a workshop in an attempt to get rid of bitterness so the citizens can live in peace and reconciliation.

Biong noted that the workshop began last Thursday and it will continue for a month.
