"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


a question World Vision needs to answer

Eric R. at Wanderings poses what I think is one of the key questions World Vision needs to answer for its donors:
Not only this but World Vision is a Christian organization whose goal is ”to follow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.” Is supporting wasteful production, obscuring the value of these goods, and marketing harmful practices truly working to promote transformation? Would Christ be open to such tokenism at the expense of responsible, sustainable aid? When Christ talks about, if you have two shirts give one to the poor, does he mean literally?
