I write this blog after the devastating news that Janet, a six- year old little girl, from Manila has passed away. My friend had done some occupational therapy sessions with Janet, and the family treated Janet like she was a precious gem – and that she was. Janet lived in a slum area in Metro Manila. I find myself thinking the same thought process over and over and over. This is so unfair, unjust…NOT RIGHT! WHY?!?! Janet suffered from serious health issues. If she were in the U...

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the legislation the Equality Act 2010 is the main piece of anti-discrimination legislation in the workforce. Within the act are a number of ‘protected characteristics’ that are protected by the act from prejudiced behaviour. These include age, disabilit...

Peter Brabeck, CEO of Nestle, is claiming that water should not be a public right and that it should be owned by corporations. Now, I'm going to hope that he hasn't even considered the consequences of what would happen to those living in slum areas if this were to manifest as I cannot bare the...

The title of my ramblings is very much a question I face people with far too frequently. Everyone will have heard the phrase ‘we should help our own’ being flung around at one time or another when discussions over charity arises. What I ask you is how do we define this concept of ‘our own.’ Is our own our next door neighbour? Those that live in Scotland? Britain? Europe? United Nations? I feel that any sort of use of the term ‘our own’ is used when a person is justifyin...

See Me Not Poverty The notion is simple – look beyond poverty to really see the human being you are dealing with. As simplistic as it sounds I really feel that this mentality fails to be adopted by the mass. For example, most people feel pity and sorrow for the victims of poverty we see in UNICEF or Save the Children adverts but aside from the sadness do we really think about who the person displayed in front of us is. Do we think about their hopes and dreams? Do we think b...
