Learn about Caritas Samoa’s work preparing for, and reacting to the Pacific tsunami, distributing essentials and building homes. On the Thai-Burma border, Caritas partner Thailand Burma Border Consortium has worked with Burmese refugees for twenty-five years, but is now dealing with the loss of many skilled staff to resettlement. Locally, New Zealanders are responding enthusiastically to the New Zealand Prison Chaplaincy Service’s “adopt-a-cell” prayer card campaign, while Caritas is backing the “350” movement, asking the government to make a strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
