Stand Up and Take Action to End POVERTY

We will spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty, to which more than a billion of them are currently subjected. -- Millennium Declaration

On October 16 - 18 as part of the United Nation’s End Poverty Millennium Campaign, UN launches Stand Up and Take Action to End Poverty, it’s a global effort that invites all to participate and take actions on the issues of poverty in the world.

Last year naisulat ko sa as Blog Action Day 2008 where I discuss the faces of poverty; Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Emotional poverty which covers 5 of the 8 Millennium Development Goals that was discussed last 2000 and signed by 189 world leaders and the MDGs discussed on my BAD’08 post were:

1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. Promote gender equality and empower women
4. Reduce child mortality
5. Improve maternal health

The remaining MDGs include:

6. Combat HIV/AIDs, malaria, and other diseases
7. Ensure environmental sustainability
8. Develop a global partnership for development

Number 6 and 7 is also part my advocacy which is AIDS/HIV and climate change awareness.

In line with this campaign I’m supporting right now, I encourage the readers of this blog to sign up for the email updates of Stand Up and Take Action (SUTA) that is located in the Supports and Advocates section of my blog, the email you will be receiving will be coming from the group of SUTA and aside from the email subscription I’m inviting you to visit

This blog entry is just a promotion of the campaign there will be more updates and personal views regarding this campaign soon.

As I am embracing this campaign I'm encouraging you to STAND UP and ACT NOW to fight POVERTY and stop APATHY!
