Welfare Services

Around the year 1955 the ASJA was responsible for successfully arranging legal representations for twenty four (24) seamen (Lascars) who were charged with mutiny aboard ship. A Pakistani seaman was also charged for murder. They were all repatriated after due process with the ASJA providing for their needs in the interim.

In the 1950's and 1960's the war between rival factions of the Madinga Tigers in Biche became unbearable for the Police Services, residents and families of victims of a family feud that could not be contained.

With the help of the ASJA the matter was eventually brought under control to everyone's relief and peace restored to the village.
