”Don't be an Alibi for Social Justice“ (Jim Wallis)

09/08/07 | by Steve [mail] | Categories: Social Justice

Commenting on Jan Egeland's address to the World Vision Triennial Council meeting in Singapore (Egeland is former U.N. under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator), Jim Wallis lifts up the 10 challenges for World Vision that Egeland identifies. Wallis believes these are worthy of consideration by any organization or group seeking to relieve human pain and suffering. While each of them is interesting and thought-provoking, number four seems to me to be worthy of special mention, and Wallis uses it as the title of his entry:

We are there to change things, not just to keep people alive. Humanitarian aid cannot become an alibi for moral and political change.
