Voices from Syria

bishop-audo

“Everything is enveloped by a sense of ruin and decay.

“Conditions are getting worse. We have no hospital, no schools, no university. Even for those who still live in their homes, the situation is difficult.

“Our needs are enormous, there is no security, there are sniper attacks, it is very dangerous… We are suffering and we don’t know what our future holds.

“As President of Caritas Syria, I am coordinating emergency relief efforts for tens of thousands of people desperately lacking food, medical care and shelter. They, like all of us, are frightened. They do not know what the future will be.”

Bishop Antoine Audo is the Chaldean Catholic Bishop of Aleppo, Syria.

The crisis in Syria is getting worse by the day. Millions of people have been uprooted from their homes by the fighting, and many are struggling to survive. Please help local volunteers in Syria to provide life-saving food, clothes and relief supplies to those most in need. cafod.org.uk/syriacrisis
