Pope's appeal for Natural Disaster Reduction

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis during his weekly General Audience made an appeal on the eve of the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction, which this year features the theme: "Reducing mortality."

The Holy Father said that “natural disasters could be avoided or at least limited, since their effects are often due to a lack of environmental care  by man. The Pope added, “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.
