Every Pound Counts

I thought I would post a few facts and figures from the ActionAid website about where all this money being pledges actually goes. I find it quite heartening to actually see in black and white how each and every pound has such an impact on peoples lives:

£7 could buy the books a child in Ethiopia needs to start school.
£10 could buy hoes, buckets and a seed pack for a family in Zimbabwe to grown their own food.
£15 could train two local people in basic healthcare in Mozambique.
£20 could send a child to school for two years in Rwanda.
£42 could provide six people with safe, clean water in Mozambique.

So there it is, not a lot really is it!?

Bye for now
