Aid to the Church in Need – Philippines extends heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims killed and wounded by the twin blasts in Jolo. Not too long ago, Jolo was also the center of double bombing that happened right in the heart of its Cathedral. ACN strongly condemns these attacks.
No purpose or reason can justify such violence. This crime is even rendered more unconscionable because of the hardships our people are going through during the covid19 pandemic. Those responsible for these atrocities are cruel and ruthless, devoid of any ounce of humanity or respect for life and property.
Aid to the Church in Need is in solidarity with and fully supports the investigating agencies involved. ACN prays that justice be swift & unrelenting for the guilty… a solace for the victims.
