International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
Extreme poverty destroys the lives and spirit of people; it kills more children, young persons, and adults than any war. Every day, people living in extreme poverty are challenged and threatened by lack of food, shelter and access to essential services.
The 2013 International Day for the Eradication of Poverty focuses on "Working together towards a world without discrimination: Building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty."
