END POVERTY DAY

 

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is observed on October 17 each year since 1993. It promotes people’s awareness of the need to end poverty and destitution worldwide, particularly in developing countries.

quote

Half the world lives on less than $2 (£1) a day and 30,000 children die each day because of poverty. This is one person every four seconds, as you can see on this display. Sadly, it is children who die most often.

Poverty affects families, communities and nations. When people are not able to get the food and shelter they need, conflicts arise. Working to end poverty will make the world safer.
