Child poverty is a world-wide issue with 1/5 children living in poverty. 1 billion children in the world are living in poverty and 22 thousand kids are dying each day because of it. Child poverty can be caused by kids living in families with low incomes. children living in poverty often do not have access to safe water, basic hygiene, a proper education and the medical help that they need, such as immunisations.
Our aim is to help child poverty and save lives. We would really like for this to be looked at as it is a big issue that kids are having to face. This issue hasn't really been properly looked at and feel that the government should do something about this.
The Help Stop Child Poverty petition to The government was written by Sophie Bullers and is in the category Children's Rights at GoPetition.
