From CHRISTIAN TODAY:
The Bishop of Durham has been appointed as the Patron of the North East Call to Action on Global Poverty and Climate Change (NE-CAP). NE-CAP, formerly Make Poverty History North East, is lobbying the Government to take clear action to alleviate poverty in developing countries. This includes promoting fairness in trade, debt reduction, increasing and improving aid, and addressing climate change.
The Rt Rev Justin Welby said the campaign aims were “very dear to my own heart and supportive of the Christian message”.
He said he had become “acutely aware” of the challenge of poverty since becoming Bishop of Durham last November, and that he wanted to add his support to NE-CAP’s call.
