“We gave bread to the poor, but we did not ask sufficiently why the poor had no bread” – Bishop Kallistos Ware. I love this quote. In 2013, let’s not just throw food or money at the problem of poverty; let’s play our part in stamping out the root cause. Compassion do what they can to educate the children in their centres and get them into employment, to break the cycle of poverty. Trussell Trust food banks give food for so long, but also talk to clients and try to help them not to become dependent on a food bank. Those are just two of the organisations you could partner with. Will you do your bit?
