11,000 Pledges to End Poverty

Parliament has received over eleven thousand personal pledges from Christians to do their part in ending world poverty.  Working parallel to the Millennium Development Goals for 2015, these pledges signify the active effort to half extreme poverty around the world.

According to Christian Today, MP Andrew George, who received the pledges said that the promises had given him a “clearer picture of the work that needs to be done if the Government is to meet the Millennium Development Goals in the next four years.”

“The Christian maxim that ‘charity begins at home’ means what it says. Charity begins at home, it doesn’t end there.”
