Comments by Heidi Christensen, Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty

Throughout history, and all around the world, the global community of faith-based organizations have been vital contributors to meeting human development needs. ICNA’s campaign United Against Hunger is an important example of one of the world’s faith traditions acting on its commitment to fight poverty and serve those suffering and excluded in their communities. ICNA’s work and the hundreds of volunteers that will address the blight of hunger throughout their communities, regardless of faith affiliation, are fulfilling the best and most faithful definition of a good neighbor.
