Charity: Micah Global

How do Christians respond to the challenge of world poverty and injustice?

 

The Bible has a lot to say about poverty and justice. One of the main passages is Micah 6:8:

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

It is from this passage that Micah Global took its name. Micah Global is a worldwide movement of Christian agencies, churches, groups, and individuals that aims to encourage people to engage more with the global issues of poverty and injustice. Micah Global’s first aim is to encourage Christians from all backgrounds to show God's kindness and justice and to speak out against the injustice of poverty.

Secondly, Micah Global equips Christians to campaign and urge decision-makers to fulfill their promise to achieve the Millennium Development Goals on global poverty set by the United Nations, as seen in the image below:
