It is a prevalent topic all over social media these days. The UN is beginning their season of round table discussions and conferences, along with DESA, UNDP, and many non profits. Anyone perusing Twitter or their Facebook feed will be bombarded with philanthropic projects, emotional pictures, and statistics about the world's poorest people and communities. And we do the same thing! Our posts are genuine and real, but intended to captivate an audience, to engage people in our mission to empower communities, and to ignite passion in the hearts of people all over the world.
But what does it really mean to serve humanity? What does it look like the empower the most depraved people in our world? These are the questions that everyone is now throwing around. What policies can we put in place to protect people from oppression? What aid can we give to get communities fed and back on their feet? It is a worthy topic and questions we hope to be able to answer some day. However, our solution for right now is instead to stop talking and start doing. These are desperate times. People don't have time to wait for our 10 point plans and well thought out agendas. At the rate children are dying of malnutrition and women dying from childbearing, there is no time to wait. Our LifeBox Containers are designed to be an emergency response. However, they are a long term solution, allowing a community to use it to grow and thrive and build.
I wonder, what is your solution? In what capacity would you want to serve? How do you fit into the fight for humanity?
We would love to have you on our team.
