Global Poverty

 
This is the default one-video player that automatically it is used to show videos grabbed by users with the get code feature of one of our players.
                     

The [global economic and financial] crisis has not only affected families and businesses in the more economically advanced countries where it originated, creating a situation in which many people, especially the young,have felt disoriented and frustrated in their aspirations for a serene future, but it has also had a profound impact on the life of developing countries. We must not lose heart, but instead resolutely rediscover our way through new forms of commitment.

--Pope Benedict XVI, January 9, 2012
