Living differently; in the interest of our distant neighbors
Woord en Daad and our supporters often ask the question; what can we do to further improve the lives of people living in developing countries? The answer is not to just simply give them money. We believe that a more holistic approach is best. We must strive to think and live differently, in attempting to advance the interests of the poor on the other side of the world. For instance, we must consider the overall impact on the environment through the products we buy daily. The questions we must ask are; Do the producers in the South get a fair price? How does it impact natural resources all over the world? What are the long-term consequences for the earth and for the poor?
