One Human Family; Food for All

One Human Family; Food for All
January 15, 2015

Thank you Sherry Sawyer for posting this video on our Empowerment It Forward Facebook page. Tears of joy, welling up in the corner of my eyes as I watched it and now write this post.

I didn't think it was possible to embody the message of the Empower it Forward movement in only one minute. I was wrong...

"Based on an ancient story about hunger and sharing, this animated video is part of Caritas’ “One Human Family, Food for All” campaign. The “allegory of the spoons” teaches us that when we struggle to feed only ourselves, everyone goes hungry. But when we focus on our neighbour’s hunger, we discover there are ways to feed everyone."

Will be contacting this group to see how we may be able to get involved and help out with their efforts. There are enough resources on the planet to provide food, clothing, shelter and a proper education to every human being multiple times over. Ending poverty is not a fantasy. It is more possible now than ever before. 

By supporting this campaign, you will assist us in co-sponsoring a project to bring a new water desalination technology (the Desolenator) to a school in a water deprived village in Tamil Nadu, India.
