The Catholic relief agency Caritas Jordan has warned that it will soon run out of supplies to serve 7,000 Christian refugees from Iraq, the Fides news agency reports.

Wael Suleiman, the director of Caritas Jordan, says that his agency is stretching its resources to help the refugees, who are clustered around the capital city of Amman. But within two months, he predicts, Caritas will no longer be able to provide help with rent, food, and other expenses.
