Pope: Care for Our Earth So As to Reduce Natural Disasters

Encourages joining efforts to reduce risks faced by most vulnerable populations

 

Pope Francis today concluded his weekly general audience with a mention of the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction, which this year features the theme: “Reducing mortality.”

The Pope noted that natural disasters could be limited if we would take better care of the environment.

“Therefore I encourage you to join far-sighted efforts in the protection of our common home, promoting a culture of prevention, also with the help of new advances, in order to reduce the risk to the most vulnerable populations.”
