The Angola team at Christian Aid in London would like to invite you for a lunchtime talk on Thursday (16th Sept) with Luis Samacumbi, from Christian Aid partner Evangelical Congregational Church in Angola (IECA). Luis will be talking about the main challenges poor people and civil society organisations face in the country.
Although Angola is Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest oil exporter, the country ranks 143rd out of 182 poorest countries. Mass land evictions and other major violations of human rights have been constantly increasing in the eight years since the end of the civil war.
So far a single story of a wealthy Angola has been told – come to Christian Aid to listen to the other side of this story. Luis Samacumbi is a familiar face to many of you. His tale of two brothers has sent a message of peace across many communities in the UK and Ireland.
What: Lunchtime talk "The Other Side of Angola"
When: Thursday 16th September, 13:00 - 14:00 (feel free to bring your lunch)
Who: With Luis Samacumbi, from Christian Aid partner Evangelical Congregational Church in Angola (IECA)
Where: At Christian Aid, 35 Lower Marsh. London, SE1 7RL
