If only we all did more to help eliminate the world of poverty
IT is worth remembering that one in eight people in the world go to bed hungry every night and about two million children die from the effects of malnutrition each year. The good news is that there is enough food to feed everyone in the world, IF a number of things changed:–
IF governments kept their aid promises, then much more food would be available to feed hungry people.
IF aid supports smallholder agriculture to give poor communities the power to feed themselves by giving seeds and education, then poverty would be drastically reduced.
IF multinational companies were to be prevented from avoidance of paying taxes, more revenue would be used to feed the poor.

IF action were to be taken to make governments more accountable to their people for how they spend their money, the lives of millions of people would be improved.
Four big IF's but the world's broken food system can be fixed so that it is not ineffective or fragile.
No one in our present time should be going hungry for whatever reason; now is the time for people to speak out against poverty and hunger to make the world a fairer place and to give millions of people the right food for a better future. All communities must be given the chance to prosper. In June 2013, the UK is to chair the G8 group of nations and when these nations meet together in this country they will begin to debate a new set of development goals for the next ten years. 'Enough Food For Everyone IF' is a campaign supported by a wide group of organisations, many of whom work to relieve hunger and poverty in the world, which is lobbying world leaders to agree some new targets to eliminate the injustice of hunger in the next decade.
With the steady increase in food prices, it is the poorest who are hit hardest. In Tiverton, the food banks of charitable organisations are in constant demand of supplies as the number of people needing basic provisions increases. The same is true the world over, which makes it so important that we lobby our MP, support the work of the aid agencies and help in whatever ways we can to help eliminate world poverty. In times of crisis there are always opportunities to create change, so now is the time to act.
The world should be one large global community and we all share a common responsibility to care for each other. St. Basil, a fourth century bishop put it this way: 'When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to the one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry, the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it, the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor'. Food for thought!
God has provided, the world is fruitful and there is enough to go around IF we don't hoard and we share what we have. IF IF IF IF…. !
