CARITAS UPDATES FROM LATIN AMERICA & CARIBBEAN
Caritas is focusing on ensuring Haitians have food, clean water and hygiene items and shelter. Clean water is in short supply and poor sanitation threatens to trigger another outbreak of cholera.
World Food Day this 16 October reminds the world again of the imperative to free humanity from hunger. Yet, today’s reality leaves us with a sense of deep discouragement.
Caritas upholds the position that human rights regarding cities and adequate housing should be at the heart of the New Urban Agenda.
