CNEWA Canada

Five years ago, Pope Francis released his encyclical Laudato Si’ (On Care for our Common Home).

This prophetic call to take care of our planet is more relevant today than ever – with recent natural disasters increasing suffering, especially among the most vulnerable.

In recent years, flooding has become heavier and longer than usual in India. Last year, more than half a million people in Kerala were forced to evacuate their homes.

While India has suffered as a result of too much rain and water, Ethiopia continues to suffer from a lack of rain.

Weather in northern Ethiopia has gotten worse every year, causing repetitive and longer droughts. Thousands of families are struggling to feed themselves and keep their children in school.

When you give, you help support these victims of flooding and drought and help the Church to journey with them. You can help rebuild their lives today.

Thank you for responding to the Pope’s call and God bless you.
