Extreme Poverty

Unless something is done, 167 million children will live in extreme poverty by 2030.*

APRECOM often helps meet families’ material needs alongside giving specific help for HIV or disability.

Poverty is a huge issue in itself and it also contributes to other problems. For example, children living with HIV or disabilities are much less likely to access the support they need, if their families are living below the poverty line.

So, the Bethany Children’s Trust works with partner projects to meet vital needs for children and families. APRECOM has provided several families with food packages and access to income development projects, so that they can better support their children in managing their disabilities or HIV status. We refuse to accept the idea of 167 million children living in extreme poverty. We are committed to making changes now to prevent that kind of future.
