Facts about Debt Cancellation

Posted on: July 16, 2012

New figures released today from a Jubilee Debt Campaign researcher  show that $125 billion have been cancelled for 33 poor countries.

Afghanistan, Benin,  Bolivia, Burkina Faso,  Burundi, Cameroon,  Central African Republic Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guyana,  Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Niger, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Sao Tome Principe, Senegal, SierraLeone, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia.

All good news for the countries concerned.

Also today BBC News had an interesting article about German debt.

At every turn it seems we are all concerned about the issue of debt. More and more reasons every day for you to take part in the JUBILEE FOR JUSTICE action.Please  get every faith leader you know to sign the special letter to the PM.

The list of signatures grows daily just look to see who you know.

I was very encouraged when so many of the clergy I knew  and emailed asking for support did sign up. It is something that every faith group can take part in.

Another simple way we can show our concern for those who are enduring poverty that comes from the debt burden.
