Caritas asks for Cuba aid after hurricane disasters

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Caritas International 01/10/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Caritas is asking for 1 million dollars in aid to use in aiding the Cuban Islanders- after recent hurricanes- the money will be used by Caritas, the Catholic Umbrella Aid organization to " provide food, construction materials and kitchen and hygiene kits to those recovering from the hurricanes which swept over the island in late August and early September. " (Caritas International 01/10/08), this includes aid of "senior citizens and children with learning difficulties, as well as education and training programmes."(Caritas International 01/10/08).

Caritas is known for their moral aid attempts and is likely by far the most effective organization to aid in this work. Many of the affected are Catholics.
