AGGIORNAMENTO PER L’INTERVENTO A PAKISTAN (Italian / English version)
Vogliamo informarvi che la Camillian Task Force (CTF) in collaborazione con la Provincia delle Filippine sta partendo per cercare di aiutare nella immensa tragedia che sta accadendo da alcune settimane in Pakistan.
Ci sono stati circa 2000 morti, 10 milioni di sfollati, 9 milioni di bambini colpiti direttamente dal disastro accaduto quasi un mese fa.
Una tragedia enorme passata sotto silenzio da parte dei mass media ma che non puo lasciare indifferente l’intera famiglia Camilliana.
Anche perche da tempo la Provincia Filippina ha avviato un rapporto di collaborazione fraterna con la diocesi di Faisalabad.
Sta partendo un team di aiuti con P. Aris Miranda, Mushtaq Anjum (un chierico Camilliano Pakistano nelle Filippine) e due esperti logisti che daranno una mano a valutare ciò che è possibile fare.
Si parla di mancanza di cibo, di medicine, di un tetto ma soprattutto di una presenza umana e qualificata capace di sollevare le popolazioni colpite.
Vi chiediamo preghiere per questa faticosa missione, risorse economiche, ma anche risorse umane .

We would like to inform you that the Camillian Task Force (CTF) in collaboration with the Philippine Province is now preparing for a mission to Pakistan who had been strucked by this on-going tragedy since the past weeks.
The disaster left around 2000 deaths, 10 million evacuees, 9 million children who have been directly affected by the huge flood a month ago.
It is indeed a great tragedy but seemingly ignored due to the silence of the mass media. However, the Camillian family could not just simply be indifferent to it. As we all know, the Philippine province for quite sometime had established a fraternal collaboration with the Diocese of Faisalabad, Pakistan.
A team of four is about to depart in a short time; composed of Fr. Aris Miranda, MI, Bro. Mushtaq Anjum, MI and two other humanitarian aide experts. They will go in order to assess the condition and plan for a possible action.
There is a dire need of food, medicines, shelter and most of all a personal presence that could give comfort to the suffering populace.
We are asking your prayers, financial support as well as human resources.

Health and peace. I pray you are well. Both Christmas and the end of the year are upon us. This is reason to celebrate. The Lord came – Emmanuel – and He is still with us. And the New Year holds much promise because of that.
2009 has been filled with both good and bad for all of us – experiences of joy but also much suffering. From the standpoint of the number and severity of disasters, the year has been quite difficult. This is nowhere more true than here in Asia. I am in Bangkok, Thailand with Theresia Sinaga. We are on our way to the Tsunami-affected area in Indonesia where we will be for Christmas. Memories of our time in Banda Aceh in 2005 poignantly remind me of how life can change for the worse from one moment to the next.
After Christmas we will go on mission to an earthquake-affected area in Padang, Indonesia [October 2009]. And in January I hope to be in Manila working with CTF Philippines in areas affected by Typhoon Ketsana [September 2009] and then with CTF Thailand in areas affected by Cyclone Nargis [May 2008]. After our experience together in Indonesia Theresia will return to Kenya to continue disaster relief work in the slum of Kibera. The needs in all these disaster situations are still great. Click here to help the neediest of the needy – those affected by disasters.
Along with others members of SOS DRS like Theresia and I are meeting some of them through providing medical, humanitarian and pastoral assistance. Please join us on mission and continue your support. We and those that we serve in disasters need your help more than ever. Read more about how you can help through an end-of-year and tax-deductible donation.
In anticipation of your generosity I offer my thanks and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
