Caritas youth was celebrated at World Youth Day 2016 with Cardinal Luis Tagle and young people from Caritas from across the world.
The water levels are going down now after the floods which hit our country last week but the challenges faced by communities are still very large. There are many places where people have suffered landslides in our diocese or have been evacuated due to landslide threats.
Caritas says that beyond food and water, clothes and temporary shelter are among the things most needed right night by those in monsoon-affected areas in Sri Lanka.
The issue of water in Nepal one year after the earthquake is of real concern for many of the communities Caritas has been speaking to. In the first community we went to in Thokarpa neither the school nor the health centre had water.
