Poverty relief charities help communities in different ways
These depend on the social and economic climate of the country.
For example, in the UK poverty charities like Oxfam help people by campaigning for better employment rights, or by helping people get back to work through language or skill training.
In developing countries, charities like Concern are fighting poverty by improving sanitation and access to water, treating and educating people about HIV and AIDS, and providing humanitarian support in the wake of natural disasters and human conflict.
Save the Children also help children in poverty through a variety of programme themes.
