The Awful Reality of Poverty

Posted By Becky Giovagnoni On June 18, 2008 @ 1:47 am In Multimedia | 10 Comments

In an effort to keep you from becoming emotionally disconnected [3]

This video [4], featured on Washingtonpost.com, is the most effective video I have seen yet on the global food crisis, in terms of showing the awful reality of poverty.

As I learn more about this crisis, I am increasingly convinced that THIS – the global food crisis – is our opportunity to live out Proverbs 3:27-28.

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow” — when you now have it with you. (NIV)

Although Compassion does not currently work in Mauritania, we do work in 24 other countries [5] where you can make a difference.

What will you do?
