783 million people live without clean water, 2.5 billion have no adequate sanitation and 1.4 billion people are without access to electricity in our world today. This is a profoundly unjust situation. In the EU there are 124.5 million people at risk of poverty or social exclusion. In Ireland 16% of the population is at risk of poverty and one in every five children lives in a poor household.
