The text bellow states 10 Facts About Global Poverty.

While I do realise it is more than ironic to post something like this under pictures of luxury and wealth, I think,perhaps, it can help us all understand the difference between us and people who have nothing. Sometimes it's hard to see the "real" world.


1.Nearly half of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty (less than $1.25 a day).
2.1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
3.More than 1 billion people lack adequate access to clean drinking water and an estimated 400 million of these are children. Because unclean water yields illness, roughly 443 million school days are missed every year.
4.In 2011, 165 million children under the age 5 were stunted (reduced rate of growth and development) due to chronic malnutrition.
5.870 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat.
6.Preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia take the lives of 2 million children a year who are too poor to afford proper treatment.
7.As of 2011, 19 million children worldwide remain unvaccinated.
8.A quarter of all humans live without electricity — approximately 1.6 billion people.
9.80 percent of the world population lives on less than $10 a day.
10.It would cost approximately $40 billion to offer basic education, clean water and sanitation, reproductive health for women, and basic health and nutrition to every person in every developing country.

I am a volunteer in a non profit organization in my country and help poor families and orphans. I small children suffering on the street everyday and it is a tragic picture. Let's all do something to help and put smiles on those faces again. There are so many ways to help.

Thank you for reading this.
Love, Helen. :)
