Baltimore, June 20, 2001 - Today marks the official launch of Catholic Relief Services' Africa Rising!

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sudan became the largest producer of refugees on the African continent last year, with some 460,000 Sudanese forced to flee to neighboring countries, while the overall number of refugees in Africa continued to grow, according to a new report by the U.S. Committee for Refugees (USCR).
It would be recalled that since 1990 African Heads of State and Government decided that 16 June of each year shall be observed as the Day of the African Child in remembrance of the massacre of innocent children in Soweto by the then racist regime of South Africa. This year's theme of the Day of the African Child is "Protection of the Child Against Exploitation and Abuse".

Rome, April 2001
Graphs and charts never tell the human story in all of its richness. For convenience, AFSC divides its work into fixed thematic and geographic categories, but we remain mindful of an overarching goal. William Penn encouraged his readers "to try what Love will do." Our aim is to be love at work in the world.
