Caritas aid for Syrian refugees

August 13, 2012

Caritas, the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies, is now assisting 13,000 persons who have been affected by the conflict there, including Syrian refugees who have fled their homes for Jordan and Lebanon and Iraqi refugees who are fleeing Syria to return to their native Iraq.

“This calamity is worsening day by day,” said Michel Roy, secretary general of Caritas Internationalis. “Caritas is striving to help the most vulnerable as we pray and act for peace. The solution is not in an all-out war, but in negotiation between the parties.”
