Remember our brothers and sisters

This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to work as a legal intern for an international Non-Governmental Organization called Project Expedite Justice. I was only able to do this because of the support of the Center for Global Justice. My primary focus has been on seeking legal remedies for children in poverty-stricken and war-torn countries.

Unfortunately, the issues we are confronting here in the United States are far worse in other places.  There are places in the world that have no masks to argue about wearing. There is no toilet paper to horde, no statues, no police, no internet, and even some with no drinkable water. Travel restrictions have made things worse. Oppression and abuse in poverty-stricken areas are on the rise.

Imagine living in a one room hut with 5 other people, no air conditioning, no showers, no mask. Contracting COVID-19 is disproportionally higher for these people, and rates of survival are disproportionally lower. Now is the time that we should remember our brothers and sisters in Christ who need our prayers and support.
