Wikipedia defines “Social responsibility as an ethical framework and suggests that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act for the benefit of society at large.” Let’s face it, many of us live from day to day as if we are unaware of the present level of human suffering which exists. We see and do not see. We hear and do not hear.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25: 35, 36
