'Listen' to the poor

The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance urged the World Bank, under President Jim Yong Kim, to include faith-based organizations in its decisions and listen to "those most affected by poverty, hunger, disease and injustice."

Alliance director Peter Prove called Kim's recent appointment a sign of hope for more effective approaches to tackling root causes of poverty.

Prove particularly urged World Bank leaders to maintain a commitment to fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic and supporting small farms in developing countries.
