Paul Karam appointed head of Caritas Lebanon
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Priest Paul Karam was appointed head of Caritas Lebanon Friday. Karam, 47, is currently the national director of the Pontifical Mission Societies. 

Karam’s appointment was made by the presidential council of the Council of Catholic Patriarchates and Priests which convenes under Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai in Bkirki. 

Attendees said they made their decision after assessing Caritas Lebanon’s role in light of increasing social challenges posed with the deluge of Syrian refugees. 

Caritas Lebanon is part of Caritas International, a relief group affiliated with the Catholic Church. 

Karam, who hails from the Jbeil village of Qartaba, will assume his post in April, and keep it until 2017.
