And so after many promises for instance from the financial institutions in the world, that it was necessary to reform the systems and everything, to achieve more development, the reforms came and they were very painful and poverty grew.
And in Aceh, the concern about so much resources, so many agencies arriving there, I know there will be in the coming months a lot of tensions being created about inflation of food prices; recruitment of Acehenese staff; the brain drain of local Acehenese from organisations into these international agencies; the issue about people being aware of the cultural sensitivities about drinking; the types of clothes they wear - they're all things which I think we need to be having at the very front of our mind, as we look at meeting this humanitarian disaster at this time.
We are happy to answer any individual queries as they arise. The Pope introduces a theme concerning the importance in tackling hunger which reoccurs later in the work, using a quote from Populorum progressio: Why do you think that was the case? It's not so much that Aceh has got a very strong history, a long history, of religious tension - I mean, it's a very Islamic area, it's had a strong history with regard to that.
Caritas was given a further endorsement when the Secretariat of State entrusted it with the official representation of all welfare organisations at the international level, especially at the United Nations. As a result, the decision was made to set up an international conference of Roman Catholic charities.
Current and former Caritas employees came forward to report their similar treatment by Haddad, and the complaints were simply too serious and too numerous for the church to ignore.
In terms of psycho-social issues, certainly I think there's a role for us in collaboration as well, at times, with Islamic organisations and others that have got experience in this area, who can be providing a forum and a space for families who have lost people, or who have lost their homes, to be able to be dealing with some of that grief, to use some of the experiences that we as an agency might have had from East Timor, or Caritas religion report, and bring those sorts of experiences forward.
Yes, I think is going to be the biggest challenge in Aceh in the coming months and year. We never made them Christians; until this day, all of them are Hindus. And for us, what we've got to be drawing upon is the experience we have in disasters like East Timor and others, where we've had to balance these different pushes that come in any sort of major crisis.
This was seen as a positive first step in ensuring that local parishes were aware of the award and knew who was involved. But even as I say this to you, honestly, we don't have all the answers.
On 1 February it was announced that the encyclical would be released sometime in April It is intended that the award will encourage young people to recognise that they are part of a parish community of living faith and to consider how they can share their gifts and talents with the wider Church in the future.
I'd be cautiously optimistic. While pupils can work together throughout the CARITAS year, the evidence which they submit should be personal and individual and should reflect their own faith journey and the impact that participating in the award has had for them.
The ways of gathering and reporting evidence for the award have been structured to ensure that all pupils who meet the criteria are able to achieve the award. It therefore becomes clear that the "timeliness" of SDC stems not only from the new facts humanity has to deal with, but from the Gospel itself, which, insofar as Word incarnate, is always new.
Caritas has been working in Aceh for four years now, under a code of conduct that prevents religious or political evangelism, and Jamie Isbister has just returned from Aceh. Only consider what is the big impact of the melting of the big ice blocks in the Southern Pole, and then the consequences in Oceania.
So this is the reason why persons like President Chavez in Venezuela or President of Ecuador or the President of Bolivia will look for good for their people. This is a tendency that today's world has, and it's wrong, in my perception. As a result, the decision was made to set up an international conference of Roman Catholic charities.
But that was as much as was discussed at that level. In negotiation with the co-ordinator an appropriate amount of hours can be agreed and logged.
Like in any community, people have lots of different values, lots of different traditions, but foremost in this response what we're going to be looking at is how we're going to be meeting the very human needs that aren't just material but also emotional, psychological, going forward.
Now what do you think the difference is? Caritas Australia has programs of education and advocacy within Australia, working to help Australians become aware of the causes of injustice and poverty and encouraging people to take action. We've mentioned Latin America a couple of times.
I didn't hear a lot in terms of talking, and I guess I was also careful about talking too much about how people's perception was of God within Aceh, in light of it being a week after the disaster.
And so I think that's the critical issue within Aceh, is that yes, it is a very religious environment, but the way that religion has been used in Indonesia over time is the issue that we'd be thinking through this issue on. So I believe it's a positive development in any circumstance.
He states everyone, including business managers and investors, should base their decisions partly on an awareness of how their actions will affect progress towards global solidarity.

The Holy Year in saw the beginning of a union of Caritas organisations. He suggests increased "regulation of the financial sector" is needed to safeguard vulnerable parties.
Our people need answers, not only promises. But now that the international community has arrived en masse to this very small province, do you find now that whether you like it or not, Caritas is taking on a more recognisably Western face?
And not surprisingly, the religious outreach hasn't been going over well in some quarters. At the moment, they've got four thousand relief workers on the ground in India and Sri Lanka, and they're committed to staying and working with local communities there for the next two years.
Pupils of all ability levels will be able to achieve the award.religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, gender identity and expression, marital or military status, or based on any individual's status in any group or class protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
The Ratzinger Report; Regensburg lecture; Jesus of Nazareth series: Jesus of Nazareth; Holy Week; Caritas in veritate (English: "Charity in Truth") While acknowledging that organized religion is not always an entirely positive influence, the Pope warns of the danger of state imposed atheism, which he says deprives citizens of the moral.
