Caritas helps 1 million in Horn of Africa

Catholic World News - October 06, 2011

Caritas Internationalis--the confederation of Catholic relief and development agencies--has announced that its member agencies have invested $41 million and assisted one million people in East Africa amid the worst drought in six decades.

“Drought triggered the current crisis, but it’s as much a manmade as natural disaster,” said humanitarian director Alistair Dutton. “We must tackle chronic underdevelopment and help communities adapt to changing climates across the region. We must seek an end to conflict in Somalia if this is to be the only famine in East Africa this century.”
