Numerous Catholics organizations have volunteered to help evacuate millions, as a cyclone prepares to hit Bangladesh and India this week.
“Our Catholic volunteers have joined the government agencies and other social workers in this massive evacuation mission,” said Father Franklin Menezes, social work director of the Archdiocese of Calcutta.
“The top priority is to protect the lives of people,” he said, according to UCA News.
Cyclone Amphan, which is equivalent to a class 5 hurricane, formed in the Bay of Bengal May 16. It is expected to make landfall May 20.
