Child poverty is unfortunately also a sad reality in Austria. Corona has further worsened the financial situation of families at risk of poverty. Those who already had to get by with little before the crisis are now even more in need: single parents, families with 3 or more children, precariously employed. More than 300,000 children and young people are currently at risk of poverty. That is every fifth child in Austria. To make people aware of this fact is the goal of an Austria-wide donation campaign by Volkshilfe.
