Caritas Action in Syria (The Irish Catholic)

August 20th, 2012

Having begun its work with refugees since the beginning of the crisis in 2011, Caritas is now working with Syrians who have fled to Jordan and Lebanon, and with Iraqi refugees who have been forced back into Iraq in order to escape the fighting. In Syria itself, Caritas is in the flashpoint cities of Homs and Aleppo distributing food to those unable tor unwilling to leave their homes.

The group estimates that it is helping some 13,000 affected Syrians in various locations.
