Poverty Around the World

The Issue

Colin Cookman

Poverty is a depressingly common issue that occurs when one has little to no money. They cannot provide food, shelter, and water for their families when in poverty. According to the United Nations:

  • Someone dies every 3 1/2 seconds of hunger in the world, which equals to about 25,000 people every day.
  • There are 2.2 billion kids that live on this earth- and 1 billion of them live in poverty.
  • 1 in 3 children around the world live without adequate shelter.
  • 80% of people who walk this earth live on less than $10.00 a day.

Luckily, this can be fixed! We can provide food , necessities, and money for poor families to solve this horrid problem.
