    Micah International joined Micah UK in handing over 11,000 pledges to halve poverty to Parliament

    The promises were made by tens of thousands of churchgoers across Britain on 10.10.10 as part of What's Your Promise? the UK chapter of Micah's 10.10.10 Campaign. On that iconic date an estimated 60 million Christians around the world stood together in prayer to remember the poor.

    These very promises were handed over to MPs on January 25 in a committee room of the House of Commons. This marked the culmination of a campaign that seeks to remind countries of their commitment to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
