Pope Francis is urging governments to find a political solution to the war in Syria as part of the Caritas Internationalis ‘Syria: Peace is Possible’ campaign
“I would like to address all the faithful and all of those who work with Caritas to build a just society,” said Pope Francis, in a specially recorded video message released 5 July, “Peace is possible in Syria.”
“Everyone has to recognise that there is no military solution for Syria, only a political one,” said the pope. “The international community must therefore support peace talks towards the building of a national unity government.”
“I invite you to ask those who are involved in peace talks to take these agreements seriously and to commit to facilitating access to humanitarian aid.”
Dealing with the humanitarian consequences of the five year war in Syria is the largest Caritas relief operation in the world.
Caritas provides food, healthcare, basic needs, education, shelter, counselling, protection and livelihoods in Syria and to refugees in host countries. National Caritas organisations reached 1.3 million people last year alone.
