Speaking to the ACN (Aid to the Church in Need) Foundation, the prelate also says that “the economy is paralyzed; there is no industry or agriculture.” The result of this anemia is reflected in the GDP which, “is below zero.” “The most affected are the poorest, those who have nothing to eat and are unable to lead a dignified life.”
The Bishop of San Carlos did not avoid asking for help: “We need help from abroad to give something to eat at least once a week,” said the prelate.
