Tra fede e fuga dalla guerra

In this photo taken Sunday, June 4, 2017, the congregation sits under an open-air wooden frame as they attend a Sunday service at a pentecostal born-again church in Bidi Bidi refugee settlement in northern Uganda. The South Sudanese refugees meet in open-air churches rigged from timber with seats made only from planks of wood or logs drilled into the ground, yet these churches for the born-again Christians are oases of joy among the daily humiliations that come with rebuilding their lives.

Nei campi profughi allestiti in Uganda per i profughi sud sudanesi sono state scattate delle toccanti immagini che testimoniano la loro pratica di fede. A Bidi Bidi, ad esempio, i cristiani di confessione pentecostale sono riusciti ad allestire una semplice struttura in legno, peraltro non del tutto coperta, per i loro momenti di preghiera: le panche sono state ricavate alla meglio da tavole di legno, anche i leggii per la Bibbia sono soltanto dei bastoni in legno, e solo qualche sedia in plastica rappresenta una minima forma di “comodità”; però, testimoniano i fotoreporter, per la comunità questi sono dei momenti fondamentali per ricostruire le proprie vite dopo la fuga dalla guerra.
