Caritas appeal for Burkina Faso
March 26, 2012
The Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies has launched a $2.3-million appeal for Burkina Faso. Nearly two million people face the prospect of famine in the sub-Saharan nation.
“Today, we are witnessing thousands of people who eat only one meal a day,” said Father Isidore Ouedraogo, executive secretary of Caritas Burkina Faso. “By intervening now, Caritas will help them survive the lean season when the lack of food is most acute.”
