Vatican’s Cor Unum calls for aid to Lebanon

.- Over the weekend, the Vatican’s Pontifical Council "Cor Unum" broadcast a request for aid to Lebanon; specifically, to Caritas Lebanon: a member of Caritas´ International’s Confederation.  With their campaign, Cor Unum hopes to assist those suffering from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Islamic militant group, Hezbollah.

The communiqué from the Vatican states that, “given the persistence of the conflict in the Middle East and of the terrible plight of the peoples involved, the Pontifical Council 'Cor Unum' wishes, in the name of the Holy Father, to demonstrate its closeness to those who are suffering.” They stated their intention of, “sending preliminary aid to help shelter the thousands of displaced people.”

Caritas Lebanon’s Mission has been divided into two parts.  The first is to, “help people in need and to restore their human dignity, regardless of their political, religious or social beliefs.” The second is to, “restore social solidarity in Lebanon, by encouraging individuals to sympathize with their fellow citizens and by fostering charitable giving by the wealthier segments of society.”    
 
The Caritas website has additional information on their mission in Lebanon as well as method for donating on-line.
