Mission Of The Month – Tearfund
Decisions we make in the UK affect poverty around the world, for good or bad. Please do pray for the election, and if one of the parties contacts you during the campaign, please take the chance to tell them you care about it. Tearfund suggest these two questions:
‘Will your party make sure we keep giving at least 0.7% of our national income as overseas aid?’
You could also add that you care passionately about aid because it saves many lives around the world every year – a life every two minutes!
‘Will your party keep the promises of the Paris Agreement and limit our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions?’
You could also add (where appropriate):
- You think this is really important because climate change is already causing terrible hunger and suffering around the world.
- Ask how they intend to reduce our emissions.
