The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Myanmar held a meeting in Yangon on March 30 to make plans to help fight the spread of the coronavirus disease.
The meeting discussed strategies how to inform the public about the disease, including the use of the online platform of Radio Veritas Asia and the various social communication ministries of the church.
The church leaders have earlier issued guidelines to parishes, encouraging members of the clergy and the faithful to coordinate with Ministry of Health in designating quarantine centers.
Volunteer doctors, nurses, priests, religious brothers, and nuns have been reminded to be always guided by the instructions released by the church leaders.
Karuna Myanmar Social Service, Karuna Social Services and the Catholic Religious Conference of Myanmar were also reminded to comply with the guidelines from the Ministry of Health. - Raymond Kyaw Aung
Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.” Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
