Live Below the Line challenges you to live on £1 a day to gain first-hand insight into the lives of people living below the poverty line and have the chance to make a difference.
During the week 27,500 children will die of malnutrition. It shouldn’t be like this. The world produces enough food for every child and we are doing more than anyone to stop children suffering from hunger and dying from malnutrition.
