INDIA: Catholic Organizations Support The Nation

While Southwest India, in the Kerala region, records a high number of coronavirus infections (more than 13 thousand cases per day) both in rural and urban areas, and the mortality rate increases, the solidarity of Catholic organizations that, from abroad, are supporting the Church and the Indian nation is expanding.

As reported to Agenzia Fides, “Catholic Mission Australia” is working in collaboration with the Syro-Malabar Eparchy of Melbourne to ensure, together with Caritas India, the production and distribution of kits for home care for Covid patients. Thousands of kits will be delivered to families in the Kerala region. The Kerala Catholic Bishops’ Council (KCBC) and the Kerala Social Services Forum (KSSF) are striving to reach 32 diocesan partners. “The kits will be distributed among families who have members with Covid symptoms”, says KCBC Deputy Secretary General Fr. Jacob G. Palackapally.
