Globe Offering: Globe Mission for April we will collect money for ELCA World Hunger. Write checks to St. Ansgar’s and write “World Hunger” in the memo.
Today, 1 in 9 people lives in extreme poverty, living on less than $1.90 a day. In the United States, 46.7 million Americans live in poverty and 795 million people around the world do not know where their next meal is coming from. As members of the ELCA, we are called to respond. Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger help our church creatively and courageously work toward a world of justice in which all are fed.
ELCA World Hunger has been working to address hunger and poverty through education, advocacy, relief and development for 42 years. From microloans to health clinics, water wells to animal husbandry, your gifts to ELCA World Hunger support innovative solutions that get at the root causes of hunger. And they don’t stop there. We engage Lutherans in advocacy and hunger education to act and speak in ways that can make a difference. Through this comprehensive approach, we address hunger from all angles, locally and around the world.
