Understanding Poverty | Shelaine Strom

23m | Jan 27, 2023

Wendi and Shelaine Strom, National Education Lead at Food for the Hungry Canada and co-host of the Ending Poverty Together Podcast, chat about the value of fostering healthy relationships within our Canadian churches and communities. Shelaine helps us recognize that though we are all impoverished in some form, not all of us are equally vulnerable at a given moment. For some of us, our poverty is hidden, while for others, their poverty is more obvious. This profound understanding of poverty helps us walk alongside our neighbours with a posture of helping and learning at the same time, creating mutual transformation. 

This episode will not only change the way you see and talk about poverty but will empower you to connect with your neighbours bringing communities closer together.
