Years ago, soon after the formation of Kingscare (now known as Karuna Action), I attended a seminar which brought people together who represented Christian organisations working overseas. I can only remember one particular statement. It has stayed with me since.
“People give to people”.
- People don’t give to my organisation.
- People don’t voluntarily give to governments.
- People don’t give to causes unless they benefit real people.
- People don’t give to charities as such, they only do so if others will benefit.
- People give to people.
