Headline: VATICAN – COVID 19: Caritas Internationalis joins Pope Francis’ request for the promotion of a ‘global creative solidarity’
Vatican City – “We are aware that we are facing an atypical emergency in which the countries that are normally among the largest donors are the most affected by the virus”, said Secretary General of Caritas Internationalis, Aloysius John, regarding the emergence of increasingly dramatic contexts related to the economic crisis caused by Covid, which require immediate responses. In the note sent to Agenzia Fides, Aloysius stresses that “we must be aware that the use of international aid to respond to national needs is not the right solution. If we do not act immediately, the consequences of the coronavirus will kill more people than the pandemic itself”.
