Nearly half the world's population live in poverty with incomes of less than $2 a day. Their struggle however is not just a financial one but one that involves holding at bay the twin perils of hunger and disease. At Family First we believe that the plight of the poor, whether in Australia or in other parts of the world, is a collective responsibility and that “to whom much is given much is required”. We believe that whatever wealth we have, whether as individuals or as a nation, it is a gift to be shared.
