Archbishop Kizito Cyprian Lwanga of Uganda, one of Caritas Internationalis vice-presidents visited Bangladesh recently in an exchange tour. Archbishop Lwanga, president of Caritas Uganda applauded various Caritas projects in northwestern Rajshahi and northeastern Mymensingh in his visit on 26-29 March. In Mymensingh he visited Caritas fisheries and trade school projects. The prelate who led the five-member visitors’ team was offered a formal reception at Caritas Mymensingh on March 29. “I’ve come to learn something new from you,” Archbishop Lwanga told the gathering. Referring to Caritas projects he added, “I’m really happy to learn how you (Caritas) successfully work in huge projects and how you face various challenges. In Uganda we have smaller projects with less manpower. This was a good place of learning for us.” Caritas Mymensingh regional director Theophil Nokrek said: “Archbishop Lwanga’s visit has great significance for Caritas Bangladesh. As he appreciated our efforts it will help us get donors for the projects.” “We’ve exchanged information openly regarding projects which will benefit both Caritas in Bangladesh and Uganda,” added Nokrek.
