Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

“In terms of the situation in southern Somalia, we’re still in a situation where over 40 per cent of children are malnourished, and amongst them, 50 per cent of them are severely malnourished, which is really beyond any acceptable level whatsoever.”

UNICEF has said that some 13 million people in the region are in need of help. The drought has caused half a million Somalis to flee their country to refugee camps in neighboring countries of Kenya, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. The conditions have drastically affected the life expectancy of children.

“It is in 6 areas of Southern Somalia where the famine has been declared but again outside the famine areas, the situation is also incredibly difficult for children. We do feel that this is a children’s famine. Large numbers of children are dying on a daily basis.”

Thousands of children have already died. Over 300,000 will likely face the same fate unless more emergency aid is sent in the coming weeks and months.
