That Poverty Project

A Declaration to World LeadersSean Krausert - 2011 Peace Medal Recipient

WE CARE!!!

Because . . .

  • Almost 1 Billion people around the world are hungry (i.e. having insufficient food to sustain life);
  • Over 2.5 Billion people lack access to clean water and/or proper sanitation;
  • More people die annually from poverty related causes than AIDS, TB, malaria, natural disasters, and conflict COMBINED;
  • Woman & children die needlessly during child birth and early childhood due to lack of basic medical care;
  • Lack of education entrenches the poverty cycle; and
  • Poverty exists in every nation in the world.

. . . and WE Believe there are Basic Human Rights whereby EVERYONE has . . .

  • sufficient food;
  • clean water and sanitation;
  • adequate shelter;
  • access to basic education; and
  • access to primary medical care.

WE, the undersigned, call upon all leaders everywhere to work together in a non-partisan, non-political manner to ensure that NO ONE GOES WITHOUT food, water and sanitation, shelter, basic education or primary medical care on their watch.

IT'S SIMPLY THE RIGHT THING TO DO!
