#Peru is a beautiful country - but extreme #poverty threatens the lives of many #children: http://t.co/dorqcCmw49
nur natasha's insight:

To live in a country like Peru, you probably be most likely known as a wealthy person but unknowingly, half of the population in Peru are living the life poverty. It is hard to see the poverty life in Peru under those wealthy people there. 11% of children in Peru die before they even reach the age of 5%. Almost half of the population in Peru is surviving on approximately $2 everyday.

There are still orphans out there without a roof over their head and they have no where to go but stay out in the streets.

Kids Alive are now helping these children with providing them with education, food, everyday necessities and also providing a roof over their heads.

They live in this stench of poverty everyday with unfulfilled hopes and dreams. Even water from the well can be a luxury item for them.

nur natasha's insight:

Nowadays, finding a job is hard and even if you find a job, it may be a low paying job. Low income, unemployment and benefit delays has become the factor of why people resorts to food banks.

These unemployment has become a big problem for people, and they also have to resort to food charities now, so as not to starve themselves  As those that are employed, the rising of food prices, the low income and increasing personal debts has become one of the reasons why they live in poverty and they are poor as well.
