Caritas in Oceania
Caritas Oceania brings together highly diverse members from the larger and smaller islands of the Pacific. These include Caritas Australia, Caritas Papua New Guinea, Caritas Samoa, Caritas Aotearoa-New Zealand, CEPAC (Caritas Pacific Islands) and Caritas Tonga. Together, they work on climate change, emergency response, peace building and development – both in their own countries and in other parts of the world.
Caritas Updates from Oceania
Scenes of devastation and of life continuing on Viti Levu Island, Fiji following Cyclone Winston where Caritas is partnering with the Archdiocese of Suva to deliver aid.
The impact of Cyclone Winston on Fiji has been severe as the Pacific nation was lashed with very destructive hurricane force winds Saturday gusting to 300 kmph. The storm had earlier hit Tonga, where Caritas is now delivering aid.
Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Caritas president, has echoed Pope Francis’ call to join “the revolution of tenderness” by inviting Caritas organisations to open their own Holy Door of Mercy
