The Greatest Poverty

The Greatest Poverty

The greatest poverty lies in being unloved and uncared for. So many people today walk through life feeling uncared for and unloved.

One of the simplest things to do – to eradicate this kind of poverty is to be nice.

Smile, ask someone if they need help, stop and ask someone why they look so tired. It will make a world of a difference.

    Hello. I’m part of a charity trying to raise money to give water to 50,000 thirsty, impoverished people.

    Please spare a few moments to read through some stats:
    • There are nearly 1 billion people in the world that don’t have clean, safe water.
    • The women and children that collect water spend approximately 40 billion hours getting it.
    • This detracts from their ability to do other work, or get an education.
    • It takes $20 to supply one of these people with a clean water supply.
    • Each dollar spent provides an economic return of $12.
    • Not least because of the drop in medical care and infant mortality.
    • Can you spare a single dollar for this campaign to bring clean water to 50,000 people?
    • That’s less than a third of the price of a cup of coffee.
    • All money goes to providing water not to admin costs or profit.

    If you can’t spare a single dollar, please pass this message on to others who might.

    Blessings,
    Gerry
