‘Challenge globalisation of indifference’


Calling upon people to ‘challenge the globalisation of indifference’ towards suffering, Cardinal Cleemis, president, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, released the research paper, ‘Weaving Hopes After Disaster: Linking Relief, Rehab and Development,’ at the Tsunami Decennial Remembrance event organised by Caritas India here. The two-day event concluded on Friday.

The study was undertaken by the Indian Social Institute, Delhi, to assess the satisfaction levels among beneficiaries of the tsunami rehabilitation project by Caritas India (a social wing of the Catholic Church in India).

Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, who was present at the event, lauded the efforts of NGOs such as Caritas India in the aftermath of the tsunami, and spoke on the need to sustain such efforts. He called upon the people to join rescue measures during natural disasters.

Two other books were also released at the event: ‘Building Resilient Communities’ and ‘Illuminating Lives’ by Chennai Archbishop George Anthonysamy and Thanjavur Diocese Bishop Devadass Ambrose.
