Europe is home to 733 million people, 11 percent of the world’s population. Though there are no developing countries in the region, it struggles with economic stability and a major influx of migrants in the last three years has strained resources and lead to political divides.
About 118 million people, or 23.5 percent, of the European population are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. Of these, 26 million are children.
Fifty million Europeans live in households where no one has a job.
Forty-three million Europeans are unable to afford a meal with meat, fish or a vegetarian equivalent every second day.
In the year to March 2017, over 1 million refugees sought safety in Europe.
The Global Impact Europe Fund brings together three of the most respected, best-in-the-business international organizations focused on helping those in Europe: FINCA International, SOS Children’s Villages – USA and HIAS.
Through this fund, you will join with millions of people to change the world by helping to provide increased access to healthcare and education, job training, women’s and youth empowerment, disaster relief, and a host of other services to those in need throughout Europe.
Your contributions go directly to supporting real and meaningful work to improve the lives of those living across Europe.
