" Working for Justice and Peace is a Question of Balance."

Send Forth of Elphie and Gabriel


send-forth-on-ellie-and-gabrielOn the 10th of July 2012 the Justice and Peace Team all gathered at the Handicraft Centre (below the up-station hill) to have a farewell supper with Elphie (the Peace Building Officer) who was leaving back to France and Gabriel (the Accountant) who will be leaving the Commission by July ending.

The Coordinator in her welcome note thanked the staff for coming and especially the family members of Gabriel who set aside this time to come and share with the Commission. Taking into account the good work done by Elphie and Gabriel, she really wished that they could have stayed longer. She concluded by telling them to always remember the Justice and Peace Office wherever they go.

The floor was then given to those departing. Elphie started by thanking the Coordinator and the staff members for organizing such an occasion on their behalf. She was very happy to have worked with the JPC and prays that the staff members should continue with the good work they are doing while Gabriel thanked all present especially the Coordinator because she was to him like a mother. He said he has learnt a lot from the Justice and Peace Office especially when he was assigned to do work which was unrelated to his job. He wished success to all. The last speaker; Justice Atabong Angelina (transferred to Kumbo) said she was not really saying goodbye because she still has some work to complete in the office and will only leave when she is done with it.

Gifts were handed to Gabriel and Elphie. The event was interesting as it gave the opportunity for the JPC Team to know some family members of Gabriel. It was really a time of relaxation and fun as the day ended with a sumptuous meal.
