Catholics Helping 5,000 People Displaced by Lukon Volcano, Indonesia

The possibility of another eruption by Mount Lukon has not stopped Catholics in North Sulawesi from helping 5,000 displaced people. Dozens of volunteers from the Diocese of Manado, including seminarians, are involved in the aid operation, handing out basic necessities, blankets and more than 5,000 masks against the thick cloud of ash caused by the 15 July eruption.

Donations sent to Caritas Indonesia are being managed by the Bishops’ Conference aid agency. Visit this article to read more.
