“We Cannot Do Everything But We Must Not Do Nothing” – Baroness Cox’s Credo
Baroness Cox’s Credo, in which she sets out the beliefs and inspiration guiding her work, has been published in the Times.
She says of HART’s work and mission:
“We try to serve and speak for other people denied their freedom and trapped in conflict, including the Rohingya Muslim, Shan Buddhist and Christian Kachin peoples in Burma; and the peoples of Sudan and South Sudan who have suffered far too much for far too long.
I am painfully aware that my endeavours are minuscule. But I believe that we who have freedom should use our freedom in the service of those denied theirs.
HART is very small. We often feel overwhelmed by the enormity of our partners’ needs on frontlines of faith and freedom around the world. We could feel almost paralysed. But we have a motto: ‘We cannot do everything, but we must not do nothing.’ I believe, if, together, we all do something, we really can make a difference.”
You can download the full text of the Credo, as submitted by Lady Cox to the Times, just below. The Credo as printed (which was slightly edited) can be found in the Times on Saturday 25th January 2014, on page 81, in the Faith Register.
