Hello! I am volunteering and fundraising for The Borgen Project. I believe as human beings we have a duty to help one another, especially those in much worse positions than ourselves. The worst-off individuals are commonly found in developing countries that are not as economically or politically strong or stable as the UK or USA. I want to use my position as a UK citizen to try and mobilise our government to do more to tackle global poverty. This is an issue that should be addressed both because it is the right thing to do and because it benefits everyone, not just the direct recipients of aid.

I believe tackling global issues like poverty is integral to progressing human society into a more positive and secure future for everyone. Especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important now than ever that we pull together, through our shared humanity, to help each other. This is even more key given the disproportionate effect the pandemic had on countries of differing levels of economic development and the privileged position individuals within more developed countries have to help those in need.
