Church in Colombia calls for solidarity with victims of flooding


The Catholic Church in Colombia is calling on the whole country to show solidarity with those who have been left homeless by the intense rainfall that has affected 80 percent of the country.

The torrential rains in Colombia have so far caused 136 deaths and have affected more than 1.3 million people. Forecasters do not expect the rain to let up any time soon.

The Bishops’ Conference of Colombia announced on Thursday it had established a relief fund to help those affected by the flooding and to provide food, clothing and housing.
