How many impoverished people are there in the world?
More than a billion people live with less than a dollar per day
Believe it or not, statistics show that more than a billion people live with less than a dollar per day. Needless to say, 2.8 million people, meaning almost half of the global population, live with less than 2 dollars per day. This is tragic. Keep in mind that 448 million children in the world are underweight. Not too many people know that every day, 30,000 children under 5 die from avoidable diseases. It is interesting to know that 20% of the global population has 90% of the wealth.
