World news is alight with stories about the recent humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. As tensions escalate, the fact that resident Ukrainians take the full brunt of the difficulty and suffering has become more apparent. As a charity organization in Georgia, Grace for All Nations, Inc. has already mobilized initiatives to answer their calls for aid.
But in an age of armchair activism, you might be wondering if working with a charity even does anything to impact what seems to be a wide-reaching concern. Today, we would like to share why charity stays relevant even (and especially so) in such scenarios:
- It shows that good is still possible in times and places where chaos prevails.
When one offers help through an international charity organization, they demonstrate the universal call for being good to one another. Anybody who values their own life proves it by acknowledging the value of the lives of others for their own sake. In other words, in a time when everything seems propelled by unseen mechanisms, humanity remains human.
- It inspires action.
Often, shared cynicism stifles any attempt at mobilizing resources or effort to help others. But when one can express their wish to help through a charity, the need to open minds, hands, and hearts becomes harder to ignore. A small group of people deciding to make a united choice can mean a world of difference to the people they want to help, either way.
- It proves that people can be better.
The information age has made it harder for people to hide the ugly sides of humanity. But sensationalism does not change the fact that people still desire to do good in the world. For as long as people can empathize with and act on the suffering of others, charities will continue to serve and inspire.
