Cardinal Sarah in Jordan to assess Syrian refugee crisis

February 19, 2013

Cardinal Robert Sarah, the president of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, has traveled to Jordan to assess the humanitarian response to a flood of refugees from Syria.

Cardinal Sarah will participate in a conference of Catholic charitable agencies at work in northern Africa and the Middle East. The top item on the agenda will be the needs of refugees from Syria. An estimated 1 million refugees have fled from that country, and another 2.5 million have been driven from their homes by the escalating violence.
