Health, Holidays & Employment

Poverty is a violation of human rights. Fighting poverty is fighting for those rights to be respected for every man, woman, and child. These rights are indivisible – if one is not respected, they are all threatened.

People who are socially excluded often have little or no access to health care, and at the same time, have to accept work that is back-breaking or dangerous to their health, with little leisure time to rest and recover. The resulting poor health makes it even more difficult for them to earn a living.
