This year’s theme is that of “Law, Religion, Health and Healing in Africa” which is particularly apt given the recent and ongoing pandemic.
The role of women and the place of the family, covid vaccine hesitancy, African independent churches, traditional healing and medicine, gender violence and the legal regulation of health are just some topics among the many being discussed.
Hekima University College is the largest English-speaking Jesuit theology college in Africa with over fifty Scholastics and other Religious and is delighted to be hosting this conference as it brings together over one hundred religious, government, senior academics and others from across the globe. We are especially pleased that there will be many from across the continent itself who are familiar with health and healing at the grass roots level.
The conference is being hosted for the College by Dr. James Campbell, SJ and will include talks given by Dr. Agbonkhianmeghe Orobator, SJ, President of JCAM, and Dr. Okoria, SJ, College Principal.
Pay by bank transfer
If you wish to make a donation by direct bank transfer please contact Fr Paul Hamill SJ email@example.com. Fr Paul will get in touch with you about the best method of transfer for you and share account details with you. Donations can be one-off gifts or of any frequency; for example, you might wish to become a regular monthly donor of small amounts; that sort of reliable income can allow for very welcome forward planning in the development of the Society’s works in Africa and Madagascar.
Often it is easier to send a donation to an office within your own country and Fr Paul can advise on how that might be done. In some countries this kind of giving can also be recognised for tax relief and the necessary receipts will be issued.
