A recent visit to Africa reminded me that many of us in the UK are stupendously wealthy in comparison to most people in Africa. I gave a £5 tip to three teenagers who gave us camel rides. The boy I gave it to looked astonished. I later found out that I had given him a week’s wages! It brought hom to me how profoundly blessed many of us are here. So please take some time this week to give a small amount to Christian Aid Week if you can. A small amount to you is a fortune to multitudes in the world.
