Indonesia: Catholic villages hardest hit by tsunami
October 29, 2010
Catholic villages were the ones “hardest hit” by the tsunami that has killed over 400 in Indonesia, according to Bishop Martinus Situmorang of Padang.
“As a diocese, we rented a boat that will depart for the islands tomorrow carrying humanitarian aid,” he said. “A team of Caritas is already in the tsunami zone and is working alongside the four priests and four nuns who live in the area. The religious are working on the frontline in helping and bringing comfort to the population.”
