URGENT action is needed to overcome a serious child poverty crisis in Andalucia.
Save the Children claims as many as 744,000 children are living at risk of poverty, a figure considerably higher than the official Junta estimate of 512,373.
The charity believes around one in ten minors suffers from ‘serious material deprivation’, while 18% live in homes where costs are not met.
At least 8% are subject to living in unheated homes, due to a lack of money for fuel.
This year, the Junta is set to invest €165 million into infancy-related policies including guaranteeing food, help for larger families, summer schools, and dental attention.
