Unitingworld’s Marcus Campbell writes:
This week I’ve been at Parliament House in Canberra, joining more than 200 Christians from across Australia to call on our leaders to do more for the world’s poorest.
The event was organised by Micah Australia, a coalition of churches and faith-based organisations working together to advocate for a more just world.
In small lobby groups, delegates young and old met with 94 Members of Parliament from across the political spectrum.
We all came bearing the message that Australian Aid works. Aid saves lives, improves global health and removes barriers that keep communities in poverty.
