Child poverty is unfortunately a sad reality in Austria too. 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 facing even more difficulties: single parents, families with 3 or more children, precariously employed people. Over 300,000 children and young people are currently at risk of poverty. That is every fifth child in Austria. Making people aware of this fact is the aim of an Austria-wide donation campaign by Volkshilfe.
