Thought for the day 9 June

9

All countries have taken a hit to their economies during the pandemic, usually with the most vulnerable being most affected. Will the G7 leaders talk about how the wealthy democracies can assist poorer and middle income countries to rebuild their economies? Will they express concern that more authoritarian countries could step in and take on that role if they don’t act? Will they be ready to commit financial resources?

 

Lord, many of the most vulnerable people in all countries have suffered most during the pandemic. As government leaders at the Summit consider how to stimulate more developed economies, inspire them to remember the needs of poorer and middle income countries, and of the poorer and more vulnerable people in every country. Encourage them to work for a world that everyone has access to healthcare, education, safe water and sanitation, adequate supplies of food and meaningful work
