How I wonder what their thoughts are when they look at our life.
Nearly half of all children in developing countries in Africa, Nigeria for example, are living in extreme poverty, with figures showing that almost 385 million children worldwide survive on less than $1.90 (£1.50) a day, the World Bank international poverty line.
Children are disproportionately affected by extreme poverty – they make up just a third of the population studied, but comprise half of the extreme poor. They are twice as likely as adults to be living on less than $1.90 a day, with 19.5% of children in developing countries living in extremely poor households, compared to just 9.2% of adults.
It’s almost a double blow – firstly, that children are twice as likely as an adult to live in extreme poverty, but also that children are much less likely than an adult to be able to cope with extreme poverty because of stunting, infant mortality, and early childhood development.
We hereby call on individuals and organization to help include children living in poverty in their generosity at all levels of intervention. Our belief is to care for the needy to give hope, spread love and make peace grow.
