The campaign A JEEP FOR THE MISSION AT GUNGO, led by the Missionary Group Ondjoyetu from the Leiria-Fátima Diocese, aims to collect funds to purchase a new Jeep to support the human and Christian development at Gungo, in Angola.

The main objective of this campaign is fundraising for the acquisition of a new Jeep for the Mission at São José do Gungo.

The Mission at São José do Gungo, with a population of about 25,000, is located in a very isolated region in the interior of the Sumbe Municipality, in Angola. To reach it, one needs to cover 130 kilometers, being that several dozens of these are “picadas” (dirt roads) with difficult accessibility and steep climbs through mountain sides, recurrently inundated by the intense rain season each year. Only a Jeep allows us to reach these almost forgotten populations of Angola... And many hours of skill training, patience, and resistance.

At the Mission, we currently have a Jeep, affectionately called “Cavalinho Branco” (Little White Horse). After almost ten years of use in these difficult circumstances, it is starting to show the extreme wear of the more than 300,000 kilometers accomplished. It is, therefore, necessary to acquire a new car, equivalent to the current one, to continue the sustainable work of human development by the missionaries of the Leiria-Fátima Diocese.

With this in mind, the A JEEP FOR THE MISSION campaign was launched on September 25th with the solidarity walk SOBRE RODAS (ON WHEELS), that took place in the Lapedo valley, in S. Eufémia, Leiria. To all that already participated in this campaign, by giving us your donation, and to all that are sensitive to this cause and available to cooperate with this Mission, a huge THANK YOU! Twapandula tchiwa! Keep walking with us. Estamos juntos! (We’re together!)

About the author

We are the Missionary Group Ondjoyetu from the Leiria-Fátima Diocese. We initiated our work in August 1999. This group has been bringing together the Dioceses of Leiria-Fátima (in Portugal) and Sumbe (in Angola).

On a first stage, we led six editions of the two-month project called “Projecto ASA – Acção Solidária com Angola” (ASA Project – Solidarity Action with Angola). It led to the signing of a protocol that established the two Dioceses as twin dioceses on March 25th, 2006. As a consequence, a permanent team of volunteers from the Leiria-Fátima Diocese currently lives in Angola.

The word that gives the name to the group – “Ondjoyetu” – means in Umbundo, the traditional language of Gungo, “Our Home”.   

In Portugal, our headquarters are located on the Diocesan Seminary of Leiria, and in Angola, we built a support house to the mission on the Pedra Um neighborhood, in Sumbe city.

 

We actively participate in the missionary efforts of the Leiria-Fátima Diocese but have also undertaken activities in other dioceses. However, our main focus for missionary action is the Gungo, in the Sumbe Diocese, as predefined on the protocol signed.  The missionary team has a role on the social and spiritual development of those communities.

Budget and due dates

The goal is to fundraise € 3,600 in two months.
