Yes to a world without poverty 

The world is currently affected by multiple crises: Covid, wars, climate change, rising prices. With harsh consequences for 700 million people. People living in extreme poverty have to feed their family on $2.15 a day. This amount is not nearly enough to meet their most urgent needs. We cannot stand by and do nothing.
