Caritas appeal for Thailand

Catholic World News - November 10, 2011

Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies, has issued a $695,000 appeal on behalf of Thai flood victims.

“This year’s strikingly heavy monsoon rain led to flooding in the majority of Thailand’s provinces, affecting over eight million people,” Caritas noted in a press release. “Over 10,000 factories and businesses--employing over half a million workers--have also been affected. Thousands of workers may lose their jobs for several months until factories reopen. With infrastructure damaged, hygiene and sanitation are a concern.”
