“When a poor person dies of hunger, it is not because God did not take care of him. It happened because neither you nor I gave that person what he needed. Calcutta is everywhere in the world if you can see with your eyes…”

These are the words of Mother Teresa, an amazing woman who worked in the Calcutta slums. And her words are true. We need to open our eyes and dare to look. We can all help alleviate the world’s need. Alone you might not get that far, but together we can actually change things. It’s like ripples in the water which get bigger and bigger and go far beyond what we can see or measure.
