Bishops Conference of Venezuela calls for aid for flood victims

.- The secretary of the Bishops Conference of Venezuela, Bishop Jose Luis Azuaje is calling on Venezuelans and the country’s institutions to collaborate in continuing to provide emergency assistance to various regions of the country that have been hit by heavy rains.

Bishop Azuaje said, “In moments of such anguish and confusion the Venezuelan people need to know the true magnitude of what has happened because the lives and futures of many people, families and whole communities are at risk.”

The bishop added that through the Catholic Charities network, the Church in Venezuela has collaborated in the assistance for those affected in the seven provinces that are in a state of emergency.

Archbishop Trinidad Valera of Vargas said that many parishes, schools and religious communities have responded to the call for help and that Catholic Charities in the United States and Germany have sent more than $52,000 dollars to Venezuela.
