In your transcript it says pitiful NGO, but in the press version it said compassionate NGO.
Actually, the true meaning of "pitiful" is exactly that: full of pity, ie, compassionate.
The correct word for what most people mean when they say "pitiful" is "pitiable."

- Inspiring or deserving pity.
- Arousing contemptuous pity, as through ineptitude or inadequacy. See Synonyms at pathetic.
- Archaic Filled with pity or compassion.
I would have to see the original Latin or Italian, but I wouldn't assume the Pope would go with the archaic meaning.
