The Bishop of Sleppo in Syria has painted a grim picture of life for Syrians in the city. As president of Caritas Syria, he said, he co-ordinates emergency relief for tens of thousands of people. “People, many of them Christians, have lost everything. In some areas like Midan they have fled their homes because of the threat of bombs, they have lost their livelihoods, schools, hospitals and other public services do not function. There is chaos," reports The Catholic Herald.
