Caritas urges humanitarian aid for North Korea
January 06, 2012
Caritas Korea, the Church’s charitable agency in South Korea, is urging the international community not to forget the dire humanitarian needs of North Korea. According to the World Food Programme, only 6% of North Koreans have sufficient food.
“In this season, the crisis becomes more acute and aid is even more urgent,” says Father Gerard Hammond, a Maryknoll missionary who works for Caritas Korea.
