Broken promises

Can you imagine what it must be like to not have any food in your house – Not because you haven’t had time to do the shopping yet, but because you haven’t go any money to buy food?

Sadly for many, that is exactly what life is like for them every day, which is so sad this day and age in the UK. In just under a week a general election will be held here in the UK, but as this news item on the BBC website yesterday, it’s clear that those who struggle to put food on their table, are completely fed up of all the promises the various political parties have made year after year that they will tackle poverty in this country and ensure everyone has a roof over their head and food to eat.

Here’s the BBC news article: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/election-2019-50663879/general-election-2019-how-do-grimsby-s-food-bank-users-want-to-vote

The election next year however seems to be focusing so much on Brexit that it’s not really any surprise that those who struggle to put food on their table, are struggling to decide if they should bother to vote, and if they do, who they should vote for.

In this day and age, no-one should have to make choices about whether they heat their home, or eat each day. It’s not just the politicians that need to do something to help end poverty in this country, each of us who can afford to eat each day and heat our homes, can reach out and help those less fortunate than ourselves. We can make a different in so many peoples’ lives if we all just help one person!
