A Quarter of Children Live on the Limit of Poverty

28 Feb 2008

A ‘Curentul’ article, translated in English by the Romanian Tdh delegation, outlines that 25% of Romanian children live on the limit of poverty. This percentage, which is the highest percentage of EU after Lithuania (27%) and Poland (29%), was given by the Accompanying Document of the 2008 Joint Report on Social Protection and Social Inclusion of the European Commission. The Report identifies three main causes which explain the poverty among children in EU: the lack of workplaces for parents, the insufficient salaries and the paucity of aid for families.
