ROMA (ACI) - Estos datos fueron recogidos el 9 de octubre en el mapa de las ayudas distribuidas en Siria, efectuado tras la reuni贸n de coordinaci贸n de los organismos caritativos presentes en el escenario sirio, convocada por el Pontificio Consejo Cor Unum del 4 al 5 de junio de 2013.

En un comunicado difundido este mi茅rcoles, el dicasterio inform贸 que son "72 millones de d贸lares asignados por las organizaciones humanitarias cat贸licas para aliviar la crisis en Siria y en las regiones vecinas; 55 entes que obran sobre el terreno; 20 ciudades sirias socorridas gracias a las ayudas enviadas y 32 organismos cat贸licos implicados hasta ahora; ayudas dispensadas tambi茅n a los refugiados" en otros pa铆ses.

El texto record贸 que las organizaciones cat贸licas est谩n involucradas en esta labor humanitaria desde el inicio de la crisis en 2011, la cual es seguida de cerca por el Papa Francisco. El Santo Padre, destac贸 el comunicado, ha alentado a estos organismos a "ayudar a la poblaci贸n de Siria, m谩s all谩 de la afiliaci贸n 茅tnica o religiosa -dijo en esa ocasi贸n- es el modo m谩s directo de contribuir a la pacificaci贸n y a la construcci贸n de una sociedad abierta a todos sus diversos componentes".

El dicasterio inform贸 que "la dificultad para obtener informaci贸n relativa a las necesidades de la poblaci贸n afectada , as铆 como de la evoluci贸n de la situaci贸n pol铆tica y social, ha repercutido en el car谩cter, a veces espor谩dico, de las ayudas enviadas y en la multiplicidad de las formas de apoyo a las instituciones presentes sobre el terreno".

"Por eso, el encuentro de junio, fue la ocasi贸n para reunir a los organismos activos en el contexto de la crisis y para decidir sobre la creaci贸n de una oficina de coordinaci贸n de la informaci贸n sobre la ayuda humanitaria distribuida por la Iglesia Cat贸lica, con el objetivo de evitar la dispersi贸n de esfuerzos y la falta de un enfoque coherente".

Indic贸 que "la gesti贸n ha sido confiada a la Caritas de Oriente Medio y Norte de 脕frica, con sede en Beirut, que tendr谩 la tarea de evaluar y controlar la entidad de las ayudas recogidas, y de compartir la informaci贸n necesaria entre todas las instituciones implicadas, incluidas las no presentes en la reuni贸n de Cor Unum".

El dicasterio asegur贸 que "esta herramienta proporcionar谩 a la Iglesia un cuadro completo de la situaci贸n de la labor humanitaria y un an谩lisis m谩s preciso de las necesidades sobre el terreno; har谩 posible trasladar a la Caritas de Siria las informaciones necesarias sobre las obras de caridad a favor de la poblaci贸n siria ; evidenciar谩 la posici贸n de relieve de la Iglesia cat贸lica entre los actores del sector humanitario en Siria y facilitar谩 la divisi贸n de informaci贸n dentro de la red de organizaciones cat贸licas implicadas, dentro y fuera del territorio de Siria".
