Feed our starving people first I recently saw a war veteran homeless and no food to eat it's a disgrace to all our hero's, and all the young children with nothing to eat at this Christmas time .

Justine Greening- 'Across Syria, Assad and other parties to the conflict are willfully impeding humanitarian access on a daily basis. It is outrageous, unacceptable and illegal to use starvation as a weapon of war.

The people of ‪#‎Madaya‬ are not alone in facing these horrors. They represent just 10% of people in besieged areas and 1% of people in so-called hard-to-reach areas in Syria.

The Assad regime and all parties to the conflict [must] allow immediate and unfettered access to all areas of Syria, not just Madaya.'

Meanwhile our country gets crippled.
Syrians are destroying trucks in Calais but not settling in other parts of Europe? Our country is overpopulated. Religion will kill humanity. But seeing as the Syrian army is mostly women. We know who has the balls in that army.

Today, 6 months on from the devastating earthquake which hit Nepal, UK aid continues to support the most vulnerable.

DFID reacted swiftly to the disaster with a package of UK aid totalling £70 million which has provided support for hundreds of thousands of people.

Dignity kits for girls and women are just one example of how we've helped.

Women submit to men who God made stronger and more masculine for a reason.

Equal rights for women will mean picking up shovels and rifles for the front line during the comming great tribulation!

Satan wants us all feminised so that we cannot fight or protect ourselves or our families.

Enjoy your victory of female power?

How can we make the world a better place by 2030? Why must we do things differently if we are to deliver on the Global Goals?

This TED Talks video has some interesting ideas: http://ow.ly/TuEC9

Investing in girls & women is an investment in a country’s future.

That's why today, Britain is backing a United Nations panel to boost women's economic empowerment around the world. It's time for equal pay and equal work. It's time to #EmpowerWomen:

More than 200 years since Edison invented the lightbulb, more than two-thirds of people in Africa have no electricity. Until recently, Elizabeth had to buy expensive, toxic kerosene in order to cook and light her home. But now, thanks to a DFID-supported project, she has solar power in her home as well as a clean cookstove. Find out more about ‪our new campaign #‎EnergyAfrica : https://lnkd.in/e6PdZgy

This World Food Day, see how we're helping to beat malnutrition in Mauritania: http://ow.ly/Tu5OW

Living conditions in this isolated area of Africa are tough: a lack of rain and farm land means families face a constant threat of food shortages. But UK aid is there – helping prevent more than 45,000 children suffering malnutrition and giving thousands of mums and mums-to-be the health advice to help them look after their loved ones. See the full gallery at: http://ow.ly/Tu5OW
