Did you know …..

Posted: August 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

.. that the richest 225 individuals in the world have a combined income greater than the poorest 4 billion people! That is 47% of the worlds population has less income than the number of people that live on one street!

What does that say about us? What does that say about the world system that we allow to exist?

How can it be right that nearly 2 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water, whilst even a single person can keep billions of pounds, that could provide safe water for all, to themselves?

Instead of expecting, or even asking, ‘them’, (the greedy few who control the world) to do anything, we should be asking ourselves ‘what shall I do to make a difference?’
