Manila, Philippines, Aug 14, 2018 / 08:33 am
Catholic parishes and assistance centers are ready to help victims of storms and major floods in the Manila area, said Cardinal Luis Tagle of Manila over the weekend.
"To our brothers and sisters affected by the flooding, just go to your parishes and social action centers if you are in need of help," the cardinal told Radio Veritas Aug. 12. "Those who want to send their help in any way they can, they can contact our parishes and social action centers and they will be willing to accept them."
The cardinal has asked for prayers for those affected by recent flooding, while also warning against the dangers of environmental destruction.
"Part of our call is for everyone not to add to what could destroy our environment," he said.
