Caritas appeals for Central America, Pakistan following floods

Catholic World News - October 24, 2011

“The desperate situation in Pakistan needs to be addressed by the international community quickly; otherwise, we will face an even greater humanitarian crisis,” said Caritas Internationalis Secretary General Michel Roy.
