Pandemic Places as Many as 86 Million Children at Risk of Poverty: Study

The COVID-19 pandemic’s economic consequences could push as many as 86 million more children into poverty by the end of 2020, a joint study by Save the Children and UNICEF showed Wednesday.
This would bring the total number of children worldwide impacted by poverty to 672 million, a 15 percent rise over last year, the two aid agencies said in a statement.
Overall almost two-thirds of those children live in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
However, according to the study, which is based on World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) projections and population data from some 100 countries, the pandemic-driven increase is expected to occur mainly in Europe and Central Asia.
“The size and scope of financial deprivation among families threaten to roll back years of success in reducing child poverty and leaving children deprived of vital services,” the statement cites UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore.
With urgent and decisive action, “we can avoid and control the pandemic threat the poorest countries and some of the most vulnerable children face,” added Inger Ashing, head of Save the Children.
They are “extremely vulnerable to even short hunger and malnutrition cycles — potentially impacting them throughout their lives,” she says in the article.
The two organizations are calling on governments to improve their social security and school feeding programs rapidly to reduce the pandemic’s impacts.
