Hard times, desperate measures

DESPERATE times call for desperate measures, or so the saying goes.

But what happens when these words are taken literally – when things get so desperate that a mother must sell her kidney to feed her family.

Do we just sit idly by and accept this adage as an unfortunate reality or do we try to make the desperate times a little less desperate?

As more and more people across Spain face eviction, poverty and hunger, there is a desperate need for a communal initiative to assist these struggling families.

After all, it seems the situation will only get worse before it gets better.

It is in this moment – when times are truly desperate – that we must offer a helping hand and curtail the need for desperate measures.
