Cardinal Sarah in Jordan to assess Syrian refugee crisis

Catholic World News - 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.
