Solutions to Inequality
How do Christians help?
Christians believe equality is of vital importance. This is because of the teachings in the Bible and the example of Jesus. (You can read more about this by clicking here.)
Because of this belief and with inequality remaining so prevalent in the world, Christians try to tackle the causes of it. There are countless examples of individuals who have helped others, alongside a number of charities and organisations. These are dedicated to promoting equality, by providing people with the things that they need to survive, including emergency aid and relief after disasters have occurred.
Christian Aid works to end poverty and injustice worldwide. They work in partnership with local organisations, as well as with governments and the private sector.
They believe that:
- Every person should be treated with respect, dignity and compassion.
- It is possible to achieve equality and justice across the world.
- Everyone should be accountable for their actions.
In seeking to bring about equality and justice, Christian Aid helps people to:
- 'Claim their rights and access services such as healthcare and education;
- become more resilient to shocks and disasters such as drought, climate change, and hurricanes;
- make the most of opportunities, such as being able to sell their produce for a fair price;
- ensure they are not discriminated against for any reason.'
