Charities Call on Christians to Work Together to End Cycle of Hunger and Poverty

Pravmir.com team | 29 May 2021

On World Hunger Day, there are renewed calls for Christians around the globe to work towards breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty, reports Premier.

The UN World Food Programme’s Executive Director, David Beasley, says that as well as dealing with the covid 19 pandemic, the world is also on the brink of a hunger pandemic. As well as Coronavirus, he says factors such as climate change and economic turbulence are affecting millions of people on the cusp of food insecurity because of price hikes or breaks in the food supply chain.

According to The Hunger Project, 690 million people worldwide are living in chronic hunger, while 130 million more may be pushed into chronic hunger by the covid-19 pandemic. The charity also says that 60 per cent of the world’s hungry are women. It is calling for the world to come together with a shared goal of realising healthy, fulfilling lives of self-reliance and dignity for all people.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,
