Collocations: Charity

When was the last time you made a donation to a local charity? Test your knowledge of common collocations:

Unfortunately, the biggest constant in society, from the origins of civilisation to the present digital age, is the systematic presence of inequality. Man has actively coveted and nurtured the continued existence of inequality. We live in a world where wealth, power, knowledge and justice are in the hands of the few to the detriment of the majority.

Regrettably, it appears to be an insurmountable challenge to change this, partially as a result of man´s natural instinct for greed.
