Why do I care?

It is normal for me to care for my extended family and for people in my social group. But why do I care about people I have never met? Why do I care about a bonded labourer, treated as a slave in India? Why do I care about a child in […]

Share your bread with the hungry

Those who know me, and my background with charities, will know that I am orientated towards people giving money and using that money to meet needs. But this article is about sharing, and sharing is different from just giving money. Sharing is not necessarily better than giving money, but […]

Food Poverty in Britain
