Covid-19: Pope sets up emergency fund - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Holy See has set up an emergency fund to help communities affected by the ravaging COVID-19, reports ITREALMS.

The Adjunct Secretary for the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples and the President of the Pontifical Mission Societies for the Propagation of the Faith (PMS), Archbishop Giampietro Dal Toso, disclosed this at the weekend.
ITREALMS gathered that PMS had spoken about a Special Emergency Fund set up by Pope Francis in April 2020 in order for the PMS to help communities affected by Covid-19.

Also, he said the fund supports the missionary action of the Church, and encouraged Churches throughout the world to collaborate in this universal fund where “all contribute to the good of all.”

Stressing that there is still a lot to be done, Archbishop Dal Toso appreciated the generous donations from Churches in different countries and highlighted some other concrete examples of need in various places.
