ACN launches new projects to assist Syrian Christians

vaticannews.va and catholicnewsagency.com
: The pontifical foundation Aid to the Church in Need has launched a new fundraising campaign to aid Syrian Christians, whose lives continue to be devastated by violence and poverty. “The war in Syria has still not ended, terrorism has yet to be defeated and our brothers have more need of our aid than ever,” said Alessandro Monteduro, the director of Aid to the Church in Need in Italy. Much of the region is still reeling from the destruction left behind by the Islamic State, while the ongoing Syrian civil war – now in its ninth year – continues to bring fresh devastation. The city of Aleppo, once the most populous city Syria and its main economic and industrial center, was reduced to ruins during a bloody siege from 2012 to 2016. The number of Christians in Aleppo has fallen dramatically,...

: The Assembly of the Catholic Ordinaries learned this morning Friday, July 19, 2019, about a new “Price Tag” hate crime, which was committed at the Galilean village of Jish, where unknown assailants damaged cars and sprayed hateful slogans in Hebrew.

It is with anger and sorrow that we issue denunciations at close intervals, and it is even with more anger that these events pass without reaching the culprits and bringing them to justice in the vast majority of the cases. In addition to this condemnation of hate crimes of all kinds, we call...
