The United Nations has declared 2015 as the Time for Global Action, especially to end poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, protect the environment, and address climate change. In trying to achieve these goals, the UN is working with governments, civil society and other partners, including religious groups, throughout the world. Yet the past year has witnessed more wars and suffering of millions of people in different parts of the world. Natural disasters, many of which can be attributed to man’s own greed, continue to wreak havoc on many countries causing untold suffering to thousands of people. To a large extent, we can consider ourselves fortunate to be in Malaysia, and be grateful for the peace and harmony that we continue to enjoy.
