DEVELOPMENT WORKS

Millennium development goals have shown that it is possible to combat poverty, improve people´s living conditions and give people a chance to live a life in dignity. Since 1990:

The number of people living on less than 1.25 USD per day has dropped by 1 billion.
The number of people suffering from malnutrition has fallen by half and so has the rate of child mortality.

HELP IS NEEDED

Almost 800 million people are living in extreme poverty and about the same number of people are affected by malnutrition

Over 250 million children do not attend school

2 billion of people are affected by water scarcity

Over 60 million people have been forced to flee their homes
