Poverty is a relevant topic for all countries. 1.56 euro for somebody is just an ice cream, but for more than 9 percent of people in the world it is a sum they have to live with a whole day.
Poverty in Lithuania is decreasing, however the work in this field is not done yet. There are more than 100 NGOs working with poverty. These organizations provide food, money, shelter, care, psychological help and many other things so that the help needed would reach everyone in need.
What sustainable step everyone of us could take today?
Notice. Maybe neighbour, friend or someone familiar needs support.
Volunteer. Share your time and attention.
Share. Donate symbolic portion of ice cream to "Save the Children" organization, which takes care of more than 1000 children in Lithuania.
Your support will be allocated to "Save the Children" day centres: to provide psychological consultations, implement educational programmes, purchase school equipment.
