Appeal for trapped villagers in Syria
Catholic World News - August 28, 2012
The international charity Aid to the Church in Need has issued an appeal to assist 12,000 Syrians trapped in a village near the Lebanese border. The Fides news agency has reported that the villagers are Eastern Catholics.
“We connected with Caritas Lebanon, [which] found a way on how to get things across to the village,” Msgr. Waldemar Cislo of the Polish branch of Aid to the Church in Need told Vatican Radio.
“Some people are starting to feel the hunger, children’s milk is running out, [there are] no canned goods, even children’s diapers no longer exist,” according to a Caritas report on the situation.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
