The Pope's aid to the suffering people of Syria

It is well known that the Holy Father has made several appeals for a stop to the violence in Syria, so that a path for dialogue and reconciliation may be found between the conflicting parties with a view for peace and the common good. The Holy Father has also urged prayer for those who are suffering. Now he has decided to donate, through of the Pontifical Council “Cor Unum”, $100,000 for charitable work of the local Church in Syria in support of the strained people. The Secretary of the Pontifical Council “Cor Unum” Mons. Giampietro Dal Toso, will be the bearer of the Holy Father's gift on Saturday, 31 March. Meetings are scheduled with H.B. Gregorios III Laham, President of Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries in Syria, and with other representatives of the local Church. The Catholic Church in Syria, through its charitable organizations, is currently engaged in projects to aid the Syrian people, especially in the areas of Homs and Aleppo.
