In developing countries, over 30% of children - about 600 million - live on less than a dollar a day. Every 3,6 seconds someone dies of hunger. This is usually a child under 5.
It is the children who suffer the most from poverty. If a severe lack of goods and services affects every human being, it jeopardizes above all the rights of children to survival, health and nutrition, education, participation, and protection against abuse and exploitation.
