Micah Challenge is calling for supporters to write letters to Treasurer Wayne Swan asking the government to take action in reducing global poverty.

As part of their Voices for Justice conference in September this year, Micah Challenge will deliver the letters, hoping to send a strong message of support for the world’s poorest people.

Australia has increased its aid in recent years and is committed to tackling poverty as part of the Millennium Development Goals. However, as one of the richest countries in the world, there is much more room for generosity when it comes to assisting in the fight against poverty.

ACL encourages our supporters to get behind Micah Challenge and write a letter to Mr Swan. Micah Challenge has provided suggested writing tips and tips for kids along with other resources for churches on their website.

Please visit their Offering of Letters webpage to be a part of this movement.
