An estimated 700 million people (and one in five children) live below the international poverty line and are deprived of basic human needs such as health care, nutrition, clean water, proper sanitation, and education. The United Nations estimates that due to the effects of the global pandemic, this number could increase by as much as half a billion people.
People fall into poverty for innumerable reasons – health issues, lack of access to resources, discrimination, natural or manmade disasters – to name a few. The world’s poorest people are often the most vulnerable to horrible outcomes like trafficking and exploitation. CFC charities address poverty by caring for immediate needs as well as helping people better prepare for their future through programs like job training, small business support, and legal aid.
Here’s how your CFC donations help to change the world by addressing poverty:
$20 gifts a family a flock of chicks, providing a source of nutrition and income for years to come.
$480 buys starting inventory for a clothing small business.
$1,500 supports 25 women to create and participate in Savings with Education groups.
