“Any one of us could have been born into extreme poverty – it is something which we all must face. We must both help those children who are struggling to survive now, and fight the global causes of poverty too so that we can prevent future generations from suffering. I feel passionately that is is our duty not to ignore the pain and suffering of our fellow human beings, especially the most vulnerable, and this is why I’m supporting Global Angels.”
