Poverty...

What do you think of when you hear the words environmental issues and poverty?  How do these two concepts link up and affect each other? This week we are looking at how poverty and environmental issues could go hand in hand. We, in the United Kingdom, and the Western World are starting to think a lot about how we can help slow down climate change and take actions that can reduce our waste and emissions… But what if that isn’t an option for people, both in our country or abroad?

Did you know that some the countries which are currently most affected by climate change and impacted by some of the major environmental issues are in fact those who contribute least to those emissions and problems. Paying the price, as a consequence of others peoples habits.

God created a world where he never wants the poor to go hungry or thirsty - so what can we do to help?  What is God telling us today we can do?
