The Nature and Extent of World Poverty
This is an issue which arouses both emotion and apathy. It is a fact of modern life that over half the world’s population is undernourished, in ill-health, inadequately housed, illiterate. With population growing, the number of people suffering from absolute deprivation is growing year by year. Although United Nations organizations, such as the Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization have been confronting governments with these facts, and development and relief organizations such as Oxfam and Christian Aid have been confronting the public with these facts, the problems exist on a greater scale than has ever been experienced in the history of mankind.
