Fighting Poverty by Nicola Barber

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people dignity, freedom, and hope, of power over their own lives. All around the world - in both wealthy and less economically developed countries - there are charities trying to improve the lives those in poverty. This book looks at the efforts of charity workers and volunteers, with exciting stories and case studies, and gives advice on how readers can get involved.
