"Children, as the most vulnerable demographic within these households, bear a disproportionate burden of poverty. Alarmingly, almost every child, about 95% of them, are living in relative poverty. Furthermore, a staggering 40% of children reside in households below the poverty line, underscoring the urgent need for interventions to alleviate their plight and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty."

 

"Presently, 8 out of 10 households find themselves grappling with inadequate income levels to sustainably cover essential expenses, surpassing the figure of 7 out of 10 reported during the height of the pandemic. The pervasive impact of the soaring cost of living, particularly food prices, casts a long shadow over the economic stability of communities, with nearly all households (90%) feeling the pinch."
