Caritas appeal for Ivory Coast

Catholic World News - February 23, 2011

Caritas Internationalis, the consortium of Catholic relief and development agencies, has issued an appeal to assist an estimated 5,000 people still displaced by last year’s election violence in Côte d’Ivoire.

“The greatest difficulties for those forced from their homes comes from not having enough food or health assistance,” said a local Caritas official. “People have a whole range of health problems that need to be treated. These include malaria, stomach upsets, skin and lung problems, and then there are the women who are pregnant and who are giving birth without adequate healthcare.”
