Poverty and Migration
Every minute, nearly 20 people are forcibly displaced by conflict, persecution, gang atrocities, drought, famine and disease. Dire situations across Africa, Asia, Central and South America drive innocent people to risk their lives and abandon all they have for unknown destinations and uncertain futures.
POVERTY and HUNGER
One in nine people around the world do not have enough to eat. When people live in extreme poverty, are forced to flee their homes and livelihoods to escape violence, or endure increasing natural disasters due to a changing climate, hunger and malnutrition follow and quickly threaten health.
Poverty and Climate Change
Climate change impacts the lives of those most vulnerable and living in poverty in many ways. The increased temperatures can lead to droughts and famines. Severe weather patterns like hurricanes and flooding are causing destruction in communities, and leading to hunger and malnutrition.
