Caritas appeal for Bangladesh

Catholic World News - September 06, 2011

Caritas Internationalis, the confederation of Catholic relief and development agencies, has issued appeal on behalf of Bangladesh, where 1.5 million have been affected by severe flooding.

“For over a week, families have been living in overcrowded flood shelters and surviving with minimum or no food or sanitation facilities,” said Dr. Benedict Alo D'Rozario, executive director of Caritas Bangladesh. “They are in urgent need of food to prevent starvation, plastic sheets for shelter, and toilets to avoid health hazards like water-borne diseases.”
