Western Sahara Conflict presented at the Elim Church in Pretoria, SA
PUSL.- The Elim Full Gospel Church in Pretoria, South Africa celebrated on the 12th May the Mother’s Day to honor mothers in Africa and beyond. In this context the congregation dedicated great part of Sunday service hearing about the Western Sahara conflict and in particular about the situation in the occupied territories, and the suffering of the Saharawi Mothers who have to raise their children under Moroccan occupation.
Pastor Immanuel Landman and the congregation prayed for the peaceful outcome of this conflict, the protection of the Saharawi population and to give wisdom to the world leaders to let the Saharawi achieve their freedom.
The presentation on Western Sahara was made by Mr. Atabongwoung Gallous from Africa Solidarity for Saharawi and the Portuguese human rights activist Isabel Lourenço, member of PUSL and FUSO.
Several testimonies from mothers and children on what motherhood and their mothers means to them transmitted in their essence the same message, that motherhood is unconditional love and strength to protect and raise their children in a safe environment even when the conditions are adverse like the ones faced by the Saharawi mother in the occupied territories.
