International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Posted on Posted in Human Rights

October 17 is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. This plague harms children’s rights as a whole in developed countries as well as in developing countries.

Established in 1993 thanks to the efforts of nongovernmental organizations and the U.N., this day is an occasion to remember that still today 2.8 billion people, half of the world population, live on less than two dollars a day.

Children are the first victims of poverty. Today poverty kills a child every 3 seconds.

Eradicating poverty is vital. A real political commitment could save more than 10 million children a year.

Humanium is involved for these children and fights daily to put an end to this massacre.
