Acute poverty is a violent attack on the body, soul and spirit of man, invading all facets of life. Poverty is indiscriminate, taking on a life of its own, exploiting our entire being and stealing everything good that God has created in us. It devalues self–worth while crushing the human spirit. While the root cause of all poverty is the work and strategies of the demonic realm, however God can redeem and change such circumstances, regardless of how severe if He has people who will live sacrificially for others through Him.

 

    We at Servants see the privilege afforded us to become extensions of our Lord in helping the poor. For a Christian, it is a gift to be able to serve the "nobodies" of this world or, to use the Lord’s words, "the least of these", for every time we help someone out of the dark well of “unalterable circumstances”, we bless Christ Himself. As He said:

 

“In as much as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
