Within only one day – about 800 million euros in donations!
How long do many hungry people in the world wait for help?
Although money was pledged again and again, the community could not agree – not even after years.
If the starving people of this world were NOTRE DAME, they would not have to wait that long!
Or we take Europe – millions of old people are living in the garbage! 50 million people in the EU can not cook hot food because they suffer from energy poverty.
Take the “young” generation in the EU!
When an entire generation loses its courage. In Spain, Greece, Portugal and France, boys have been taking to the streets for some time, not just since the “yellow west”. Their anger is justified, because in France alone, the youth unemployment rate in September 2018 was over 20%, in Greece every fourth employee is unemployed!
The “rich” France has 6 million unemployed and here too the poverty rate does not fall, about 8.9 million people live below the poverty line. The French government plans to spend about 295 billion euros on defense equipment in the next few years !!!
Do you remember? The EU sought solutions to the poverty of the “young generation”!
In July 2013, the 28 EU labor ministers in the Chancellery adopted concrete measures to tackle high youth unemployment in Europe. In Europe at the time, more than 5.6 million young people under the age of 25 were jobless. 6 billion euros – for 7 years! Sounds very much at first, but it’s not even 1 billion euros per year. If you divide the mathematically six billion into the unemployed young heads, only a few hundred euros remain for each one. By comparison, defense spending in Europe in 2017 amounted to € 282 billion.
So we ask ourselves: why is Vatican so rich and people are starving outside?
The answer could be: They give them hope!
Is that still up-to-date? Does the NOTRE DAME still give people hope?
It’s Easter and again the church is calling for donations, maybe for the NOTRE DAME!
My comment:With God’s help and the enormous sum of 800 million … it should not be a problem. After all, it is a place of worship, here the good has his own interest that his house is quickly revived.
Some millions of tourists have to settle for burned parts of the cathedral, and the faithful have to wait a bit with their prayer until the restoration is complete.
We would have best used the 800 million against the deforestation of the Amazon or for the reconstruction of the thousand ruined houses of the orangutan families in the Indonesian forests.
My best regards all, Venus
