New inequality report a stark reminder of the scourge of inequality, says World Vision

The release of today’s Human Development Report by UNDP highlights the levels of inequality that show how far we have to go before every child is experiencing life in all its fullness.

“No child should be left behind, yet inequality means millions are," said World Vision's Norbert Hsu, World Vision Partnership Leader for Global Impact.

“Inequality isolates, it drives people apart, and it costs children’s lives. In World Vision, we see stark reminders of the reality of inequality every day. 

“Injustice, inequality, corruption and disasters affect the lives and futures of children all over the world. This is why we’re passionate at World Vision about ensuring our programmes work to reduce inequality and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of everyone. We believe we can all –governments, businesses, faith groups, organisations and individuals –do more to help close the inequality gap.”
