Introduction

Coursework - Religious Studies - Part 2 Choose two specific examples of problems faced by people in developing countries and explain how Christians might apply the beliefs you have identified to the problems In part two of my coursework I will explain how Christians can make a difference to poverty and I will refer to charities and solutions on how to help the people in less developed countries (LDC).
