Description: More than a billion people around the world live on less than $1.25 per day. Millions still die from preventable diseases like malaria and tens of millions lack the most basic needs, such as clean water and a sustainable food supply. Caring for the poor is a Biblical mandate and is social common sense. Michael Miller works to help the global poor through enterprise, trade and partnerships that will allow them to help themselves. We’ll talk with him about it today.
