Headline: ASIA/KAZAKHSTAN – the Protection of creation and social responsibility among the objectives of the Caritas in the new year
Almaty – “it’s finally a new year: for the Caritas of Kazakhstan it is a new beginning with many challenges, so many emotions, new initiatives, and old and new friends. Thank you to all those who are united to us in 2019 and we hope that they will continue to accompany us in this journey”. It is the message with which the director of Caritas Kazakhstan, father Guido Trezzani, tells the organization’s goals for 2020. In a note sent to Agenzia Fides, the missionary explains that great importance will be the theme of the safeguard of creation: “The events of recent months have placed ecology at the centre of the priorities of the world. This is not the context to deepen the discussion on the ‘phenomenon ‘ Greta’, but what is certain is that when the volume of the slogan is lowered, everyone is left with the question: ‘what can I do concretely?’. In this perspective, was very important for us to Caritas Kazakhstan to take part in the conference organised last December in Bangkok by Caritas Asia and based on open questions that the Pope has launched in the encyclical ‘Praised’. For a reality like ours, which moves the first steps towards problems so vast, it was a unique opportunity to hear the results and experiences obtained by other organizations of the Confederation, and to find inspiration for our present and future projects”.
