Poverty is on the rise again

For almost 25 years, the number of people living in extreme poverty — on less than $1.90 per person per day — was going down. But, the number is going up again. Mostly due to COVID, inflation, and wars. 

Around 85 million more people live in extreme poverty now.

We work where children need us most


Children and their families across Africa were already in a difficult situation. For many years they have faced food shortages and conflict. In many places, schools and hospitals are bad. Far too many people live in poverty and many children grow up without hope for a better future.

Through your support, we provide food, health and nutrition, education, and protection programs. As a result, the lives of children are being transformed. But, we there is still so much more to do.  Learn more about how you are supporting kids in Africa.

This region has the highest numbers of orphans and kids out of school. Because of COVID, there has been an increase in poverty, loss of jobs, and less access to health and nutrition services. All of this is pushing up rates of hunger and malnutrition across Asia and the Middle East.
