In the January issue of women church world we interviewed Sister Yudith Pereira Rico, in charge of the international office of Solidarity with South Sudan, an association of male and female congregations that seeks to provide aid in the face of the enormous needs of this African country.

They were violently aggressive towards the sisters. In war zones women once again remain the preferred victims.
