Today I wanted to share with you something very positive from the world of development. The Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty.

They also make a brilliant contribution to global statistics and conversations on health and development and are pioneering the belief that people all over the world have lives of equal value. We are right behind them!

This short and beautiful video offers us the vision of a world where poverty is history and every country enjoys a basic quality of life. This vision is something that we can all hold in our own way. It wouldn’t be possible without the work of development charities and organisations and people like you who give what you can to help people millions of miles away.

Thank you.
