Seeing God in the Poor – A Story from Africa by Themi Adamopoulo
Watch and listen as Fr. Themi Adamopoulo discusses the scandal occurring in Africa and the world. The greatest scandal that we are currently facing is hunger. Hunger kills 20,000 people a day in Africa. Jesus says “for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in”. What would Jesus say to us if we do not help those who are hungry. To donate please visit http://paradise4kids.org/
