A child dies every 10 seconds from poverty and hunger which are responsible for the death of 3.1 million children a year. That's nearly half of all deaths in children under the age of 5.
We need to address this horror by considering extreme child poverty as a ProLife challenge. One way of addressing this challenge is for churches, synagogues, and mosques to adopt and promote an organization that addresses extreme poverty and saves children’s lives and takes up an occasional collection. If we can afford an occasional donation to an organization that addresses extreme poverty, we can save some of these children’s lives. For example, one can feed a child in India for $10.00 a month. Please ask yourself if together we can honor Christ’s mandate of the sanctity of ALL life.
Pope calls on world leaders to eradicate poverty, hunger. Unfortunately, world leaders have not done a great job in addressing this challenge. Together with Holy Father, we can eradicate child poverty and hunger throughout the world - together we can make a difference. Even small donations like $10 can reduce poverty and feed a child.
It is up to us to protect human lives and especially the lives of children,
