For the people of Kenosha in Wisconsin USA, following another episode of unjustified police brutality, we ask that those in authority act quickly to bring people together at this sensitive time. We pray for people throughout Africa having declared the eradication of Polio, and we plead for greater funding for efforts to combat diseases that are still prevalent and especially those affecting the young.In this country we remember the plight of asylum seekers following the tragic death of a young woman and the baby she leaves behind.
