70/365: Poverty

70/365: Poverty — The United Kingdom is within the top ten wealthiest countries in the world. I find that fact hard to grasp sometimes. The area I live in is quite a poor area. There are very few work opportunities and there are a huge number of families in debt. My time spent volunteering for Christians Against Poverty highlights just how desperate people are. I hear of parents unable to feed their children, people contemplating suicide because there seems to be no way out for them. Poverty is real and it affects so many people. My heart aches for those people I meet through the work of Christians Against Poverty. Lives are changing because of this work and it really is a blessing to see the difference in people.
