“We Franciscans, known for the chrism of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, the followers of Christ and his Gospel, lovers of God, of humanity and of every creature, say ‘No’ to violence against women, and we are committed to helping the growth and development of girls,” an appeal launched by the “Association of Franciscan Families of India”(AFFI) says.

Remembering with pain the terrible violence against women present in the country, as Franciscans in India, we appeal to all our educational and charity institutes to focus on the well-being of girls through concrete actions”, says the appeal sent to Fides and signed by Fr. A.J. Mathew OFM.Cap, President of AFFI.
