Massive Rise in Homelessness Rates for NJ Families

Homeless children. Those are two words that should never be in the same sentence. Yet family homelessness is increasing.A new report by the Institute for Children, Poverty & Homelessness (ICPH) has found that since 2008, family homelessness in New Jersey has increased by over 40 percent. There has been an increase in the number of homeless children by nearly 14 percent.The reasons cited for the increase in homelessness include unemployment (31.3 percent), eviction (25.7 percent), and the high cost of housing (22.3 percent). In Essex County, home to the city of Newark, there was more than a 136 percent increase in family homelessness.

Poor diet kills 2.6 million infants a year, says survey by Save the Children

Malnutrition is the root cause of the deaths of 2.6 million children each year, and the bodies and brains of 450 million more will fail to develop properly due to inadequate diet over the next 15 years unless immediate action is taken, according to a survey published on Wednesday by a leading international charity.The survey of developing countries, A Life Free from Hunger, produced by Save the Children, estimates one in four children are already stunted because of malnutrition.In some developing countries the figure is one in three. In India 48% of children are stunted. And in high population-growth Nigeria and Tanzania, the problem is escalating rapidly, it says.They urge David Cameron to use the 2012 Olympics, when dozens of heads of state will be in London, to host a “world hunger summit” and launch an international campaign to aid malnutrition victims. Campaigners also want the issue addressed at the G8 summit in Chicago in May.

Archbishop Enters Foreign Aid Debate: 'Every Child is Valuable In God's Eyes'

The Anglican Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, has said that people need to realize each and every life is “valuable in the sight of God,” whether that be a child suffering from a preventable disease in Africa or a child suffering poverty in the U.K.British Prime Minister David Cameron has been criticized by some, who are questioning how he could offer so much for foreign aid whilst Britain was still suffering amidst widespread austerity measures.However, Sentamu gave a very opposite opinion by saying he believed the U.K.’s spending on foreign aid was still “woefully short of what is needed.”Sentamu, 62, said: “I would like to ask you a question: ‘What should be our top priority, the life of a child suffering from poverty in the UK – or the life of a child dying from a preventable disease in Africa?’“The answer is, of course, that each life is equally valuable in the sight of God, and the language of ‘top priority’ is misplaced.”

They will also learn that with as little as $32 per month a child will be provided opportunities for education, health and personal development.”Compassion Sunday gives churchgoers a tangible way to help the poor – by offering hope and encouragement to a child in need,” says Jerry Henderson, national church relations director at Compassion International and a former pastor. “Churches half a world away can serve as catalysts for permanent change in the life of a poverty-stricken child by becoming a child sponsor through Compassion International.”

Pastor's Death Sentence Highlights Christians Plight

A massive government crackdown against Christians has led to the imprisonment of many believers and the threatened execution of a pastor.At least 285 Christians in 35 cities were arrested in Iran during the second half of 2010. Many have spent week, and even months in prison, often serving long stretches in solitary confinement.They also have endured interrogations and psychological abuse.Iranian Pastor Hormoz Shariat of Iran Alive Ministries, formerly International Antioch Ministries, hosts a satellite television show that is broadcast into Iran. Shariat said most often the Iranian Revolutionary Guards arrest and don’t even tell their family.”They can’t have a lawyer, not even a formal charge,” Shariat said. “Sometimes they get killed without even a formal charge.”When President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office in 2005, he pledged to halt the spread of Christianity in Iran.
