Africa GCC China Cooperation







Chairman and Co Founder of Royal Group, His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah established the International cooperation between Africa, GCC and China on 11th November 2015.

The purpose of this day was to start awareness of the recognition and its role in strengthening the relations between Africa and Asia.

In adopting this challenging mission, Royal Group reiterated the responsibility of each individual country to protect its political and economic interests, which entails participation and collaboration.

Royal Group will contribute its full efforts to ensure sustainable growth and prosperity for the future.

Africa GCC China Cooperation on Poverty

Knowledge sharing in the fields of social development and poverty alleviation between China and Africa has always been of interest to Royal Group.

China’s poverty reduction achievements in poverty reduction are well documented, and the country is a forerunner among developing countries to meet the UN millennium development goals. It has made a major contribution to the global poverty reduction mission. 

Since the start of the reform, more than 850 million Chinese people have been lifted out of extreme poverty with one fifth of the world’s population now secured with food, necessities and have access to basic welfare.

Asia and African countries are both developing countries, and have many similarities in poverty reduction and development situations. Therefore, China and Africa can share many development models and experiences with each other.

The fundamental reason for China’s successful poverty alleviation lies in its insistence on eliminating poverty, improving livelihood, and achieving common prosperity.

The driving force for China’s successful poverty reduction is to always adhere to the reform and opening up policies, maintain sustained and steady economic growth, and continuously introduce social policies conducive to the development of poverty stricken areas and poor people, which has laid a solid foundation for large scale poverty reduction.

Africa can enjoy its second mover advantage and strengthen its trade, investment and international cooperation through participating in the Africa GCC China Initiative, which will facilitate the economic growth, poverty reduction, and social development of the continent.

We must adhere to the government oriented method, integrate poverty alleviation into the country overall development strategy, promote it as a strategic task, concentrate on large scale special poverty alleviation actions, and implement specific development plans for women, children, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities.

To improve the effectiveness of poverty reduction, we must utilize the targeted poverty alleviation strategy by tackling the root causes of poverty.

The GCC role must therefore be to increase investment and strengthen financial support.

We must adhere to social mobilization, unite all forces, and make the government and society work together to realize extensive participation in poverty alleviation so the effectiveness of poverty alleviation can withstand the test of practice and history.

International cooperation is an effective way to learn and share poverty alleviation experiences in different countries, and promote poverty reduction capacity.

This new mechanism is based on the African GCC China cooperation to make it possible to fully participate in the management of poverty reduction cooperation projects, which will demonstrate equality.

This new pattern of Africa GCC China poverty reduction cooperation will help improve people’s livelihood and, promote the connections between the people, lay an ideal foundation of public opinion for Africa GCC China cooperation, and help consolidate the friendly and cooperative relations between Africa, GCC and China.

Africa has the second mover advantage in industrialization as well as poverty reduction and development. In the future, Africa can fully utilize China’s poverty reduction models with the most significant effect and prominent innovative experience, and continuously achieve new results in shared development. 

Africa GCC China Cooperation on Vaccine

As China prepares to supply as a foreign aid its coronavirus vaccines  its to African countries with an ultra-low temperature that would enable the transport of coronavirus vaccines to Africa.

China’s assistant minister for foreign affairs, promised that once China’s Covid-19 vaccines were developed and deployed, Beijing would actively consider providing them to African countries in need, as a concrete measure to help Africa defeat the virus at an early date.

China’s promise to make Africa a priority for its vaccines has proven to be on the right track as China will actively consider providing more than 500,000 vaccines to African countries in need to help secure an early victory against the virus.

Egypt already received shipments of coronavirus vaccines from the United Arab Emirates that was manufactured by China National Pharmaceutical Group.

Egypt had obtained legislative approval to produce the Chinese sinovac biotech vaccine with negotiation to manufacture the vaccine in Africa. This achievement would make Africa become the hub for vaccine production and distribution.

Royal Group would continue to coordinate between Africa, GCC and China to ensure humanitarian assistance is always a priority for Africa.

Over the past decades, the link between security and development has increased significantly. Governments throughout the world have begun to adapt their military strategies to include plans for development. This change is due to the increasing acceptance of the idea that development brings peace and stability. There is a significant debate surrounding this change in strategy. Some support military involvement in development efforts and believe military strategies can be effective in completing certain development initiatives. Others believe that development is best left to NGOs and those organizations that are not affiliated with the government or the violence frequently associated with military operations.

More specifically, those against military involvement in development think that the humanitarian principles guiding the use of aid and development will be overshadowed by political and security goals. Development for the benefit of the people may be forsaken for development that accomplishes specific government priorities. A military role in development also has the potential to harm the credibility of the aid and development operation, as well as make it difficult for civilians to trust in the operation. This can also indistinct the line between humanitarian and security work and threaten the neutrality that has traditionally helped to protect many aid workers.

Those who support military involvement in development believe that cooperation between the military, NGOs, and civilians will only improve development operations. Military operations in development may have the added reward of contributing to the overall security of the conflict area.The military can provide security for humanitarian workers to operate, support agencies work with logistical and protection services, or provide direct assistance to the population themselves, all of these actions can be aided by the skills gained in military training.

Royal Group seeks to provide a key position on both sides of the legislative debate by highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of military involvement with development strategies being interlinked with security policy. It also seeks to highlight the ethical issues surrounding the link between military security and development and aims to give a voice to multiple perspectives.

In this direction, we strongly believe that peace and stability could take us into the process of development and growth in a safer environment, leading us into a brighter future.

End to Poverty awareness campaign

Humanity has taken tremendous steps toward improving life for the world’s poorest people. Millions of people have gained access to clean water and millions more children now have access to life saving vaccines. Together, we can continue to push humanity forward.

Royal Group Charity Foundation, chaired by H.H Prince Khalid Al-Sabah, launches an End to Poverty awareness campaign.

Although poverty is considered one of the most critical issues in today’s society, only 10% of the cases are reported while 90% remain ignored.

Poverty is a global problem that is deeply rooted in the world we live in today.

Poverty is the state for the majority of the world’s people and nations. Why is this? Is it enough to blame poor people for their own predicament and be solely responsible for their plight? What about their governments? Have they pursued policies that actually harm successful development? Such causes of poverty and inequality are no doubt real. But deeper and more global causes of poverty are often less addressed.

Behind the increasing interconnectedness promised by globalization are global decisions, policies, and practices. These are typically influenced, driven, or formulated by the rich and powerful. These can be leaders of rich countries or other global actors such as multinational corporations, institutions, and influential people.

In the face of such enormous external influence, the governments of poor nations and their people are often powerless. As a result, in the global context, a few get wealthy while the majority struggle.

The silent killers are poverty, easily preventable diseases and illnesses, and other related causes. Despite the scale of this daily ongoing catastrophe, it rarely manages to achieve, much less sustain, prime-time, headline coverage.

For over 20 years, Royal Group Charity Foundation has supported and initiated projects in over 64 countries regardless of gender, race, or religion. We collaborate with a range of charities, government, and educational organizations to combat poverty, empower women and youth, develop communities, provide disaster relief and create cultural understanding through education. Together, we can build bridges for a more compassionate, tolerant, and accepting world.

Help and Support Royal Group Charity spread the WORD and join us to fight poverty worldwide.

We hope to become a model for other countries in their respective struggles to end poverty.


Gulf Cooperation Council Aid

Over the past four decades, the six member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have been the source of large amounts of overseas development assistance, humanitarian aid, and other forms of support for developing and crisis afflicted countries, both through state led channels and through the work of private organizations and individual donors. With their own experiences of rapid development over the past several decades and lengthy experience of working in underdeveloped and fragile contexts. The GCC states have considerable store of institutional knowledge with respect to development.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has reached out to the world in providing humanitarian assistance. The Kingdom’s global assistance amounted to billions of dollars which represents 5.8% of the total amount of humanitarian aid provided worldwide.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been able to provide such extensive humanitarian support to those in need thanks to the ongoing commitment by the Kingdom’s leadership to alleviating suffering around the world by reflecting these values in committing to supporting people in need worldwide.

Royal Group Charity congratulates the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on this remarkable achievement.

The United Arab Emirates has been another major humanitarian donor after it offered billion of dollars in foreign aid to reach the most vulnerable communities and the least developed societies in more than 140 countries around the world by promoting policies which improve the economic and social well being of people around the world.

The United Arab Emirates targeted different sectors such as tourism, health, transport, education, social services, infrastructure development water and sanitation, environment and climate change, agriculture with the remaining amount of the UAE’s foreign disbursement dedicated to charity and humanitarian aid which were translated in supporting the sectors of health and education, in strengthening coordination and support services, and in the provision of food, shelter and non food items to vulnerable communities.

This achievement of the UAE was made possible, thanks to several governmental and non governmental bodies who are thoughtfully dedicated to alleviating suffering and promoting development around the world.

Money was spent on developmental, humanitarian and charitable projects in 71 countries and on one global project.

Dress One Million Needy Children project was of a global character and it aimed at providing support to more than two million children in 44 countries around the world.

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum for their continuous efforts and great achievements in humanitarian objective purposes around the world.

The state of Kuwait is an inveterate donor in the world and the largest provider of development co-operation in the Gulf region, providing its assistance under the broad framework of its commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Kuwait’s official development assistance has been increasing consistently over the past decade. Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development provides concessional loans for development projects that are high priority to recipient countries, following a demand-driven approach.

Kuwait uses it’s fund assets for development and humanitarian on a national and international level.

The Kuwait Fund allocates more than a quarter of its annual income to the Public Authority for Housing Assistance to help Kuwaiti citizens with their housing needs.

The Fund also originates loans to assist countries worldwide in developing infrastructure, health services, education, energy and agricultural needs.

In addition to the Fund, Kuwait also extends substantial humanitarian aid during natural disasters.

The other source that Kuwait uses to achieve and execute some of its initiatives is the Kuwait Investment Authority, which was established in 1953 to diversify revenues away from oil and to secure the welfare of future generations. Being one of the largest Sovereign Wealth Fund in the world.

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and Crown Prince Nawaf Al-Sabah for their continuous and generous contributions around the world.

Qatar’s international relations and foreign policy are also a sign of generosity from the state. Qatar has emerged as a trusted third-party mediator successfully cultivating sophisticated engagements in peace and conflict issues and solidifying its reputation as a key global player in conflict-affected contexts.

Qatar has established a unique position for itself by maintaining, over many years, a campaign for human rights and freedom of expression and by championing a number of humanitarian crises in the region and beyond.

Qatar’s role as a humanitarian donor is not under threat and it may even emerge from the crisis with a more sustainable and resilient humanitarian sector.

As a result of the crisis, Qatar’s humanitarian sector has been minimized with only Qatar Charity and the Qatar Red Crescent Society as major operational humanitarian actors and Qatar Foundation as a donor for education support. Qatar now more closely resembles other Gulf states in the reduced diversity and size of its humanitarian sector.

The volume of Qatari humanitarian aid has not declined. Rather, while Qatari humanitarian aid levels dropped in 2016, they returned to pre-blockade numbers in 2017, signaling that Qatar intends to uphold its international commitments and maintain its international and regional role through the blockade. What has been observed, however, is a shift in resource allocation with a greater proportion of Qatar’s humanitarian financing channeled through multi-lateral organizations.

learning from previous failures and triumphs, Qatar’s active role in gaining international recognition as a regional power has evolved from employing reactive, short term strategy to a more sophisticated approach of sustainable long term programming backed by larger financial allocations. 

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani for his effective contribution to realizing the international partnership for development and enhancement of the international developmental aid in relation with assisting the developing countries to achieve the millennium developmental goals.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is one of the Gulf leader and occupying a high position on the World Giving Index. This position is the fruit of the charitable organizations and Bahrain community remarkable efforts and close cooperation with various humanitarian organizations around the world. Under the patronage of His Majesty the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Honorary President of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation, the support of the good government and the illuminated leadership of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of RHF’s Board of Trustees, RHF is leading the Bahraini charity and humanitarian work to set the name of Bahrain among the most initiating and giving world nations.

Bahrain always tries to be present in most areas that undergo conflict and wars and natural disasters in order to provide humanitarian aid and relief,

The Royal Humanitarian Foundation launched Your Food at Your Home initiative to distribute meals to the needy. 

Royal Group Charity would like to congratulate His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Deputy King and Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa for the continuous efforts in meeting the international standards for  meeting all humanitarian needs.

The sultans of Oman’s main concentration has always been focussed on humanitarian.

The Oman Humanitarian Desalination Challenge is a joint initiative led by MEDRC Water Research and The Research Council Oman with funding provided by The Sultan Qaboos Higher Center for Culture and Science.

Access to clean fresh drinking water following a disaster is critical to health and survival. Current relief response measures often rely on transporting massive quantities of bottled water into the affected population or distributing water purification devices or tablets that don’t have the ability to rid water of salt. There is an urgent need for a desalination device that can be deployed quickly and affordably to people in need of drinking water in times of crises. Such a device would revolutionize humanitarian emergency response efforts in the aftermath of natural disasters.

Oman Charitable Organization is a state funded charitable organization engaged in supporting and financing the social care programs intended for the general welfare of the people, children, orphans, elderly people, and the disabled. Oman provides emergency relief in case of disasters or natural calamities.

Royal Group Charity would like to congratulate His Majesty Haitham bin Tariq Al Said for continuous care around the world for children, youth, family welfare, community development, disasters and humanitarian.

Royal Group Charity welcomes the ongoing cooperation between the  Gulf Cooperation Council, and the shared commitment to safeguarding the well being of families and citizens, which serves to underline the world’s united stand against COVID-19.

Royal Group Charity supports efforts to combat coronavirus in Africa.

Royal Group Charity and local partners have delivered assistance in Togo, Nigeria, Ghana and DRC Congo, as part of its continued efforts aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and helping communities in need.

In Nigeria, several hospitals have benefited from the assistance provided through Royal Group Charity with supplies of clothing, masks, gloves, thermometers, and cleaning and sterilization materials.

Royal Group Charity pledges $33 million for Coronavirus Deadly Outbreak ( COVID-19 )

Royal Group Charity Foundation responding to coronavirus

Royal Group Charity Foundation, Founder and Trustee His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah announced yesterday that Royal Group Charity is following the updates on the new coronavirus epidemic which has resulted in daily deaths all over the world.

From Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa, a steady stream of new cases fueled fears that the new coronavirus epidemic may be turning into a global pandemic, with some health officials saying it may be inevitable.

As the coronavirus continues to multiply and spread around the world, Royal Group Charity Foundation pledged to spend $33 million to boost efforts to address the outbreak.

The funds will help strengthen safe shelter, hygiene food safety, and family assistance.
The funds will support the development of prevention systems in Africa Middle East and Asia.

The funds will be distributed to local partners that Royal Group Charity Foundation works closely with who follow the safety guidelines of the World Health Organization.

Royal Group Charity Foundation’s main focus has mostly been on fighting poverty. We have always maintained a firm determination  to fight poverty as a determined philanthropist in the world.

The funds will help strengthen prevention measures being implemented in countries with at-risk populations by working with Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Our commitment to Africa is part of an effort to help the less fortunate in the global response to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Another $5 million has been committed to help secure food and shelter for those without means to survive the epidemic.

Among African Union member states, the efforts should be supported by the African field epidemiology network (AFENET), in collaboration with the Africa centers for disease control and prevention. AFENET is a nonprofit alliance of field epidemiology and laboratory training programs that operates across the African continent.

Multilateral organizations, governments, private sector, and philanthropies must all work together to slow the pace of the outbreak by helping countries protect their most vulnerable citizens, and accelerate the development of the tools to bring this epidemic under control.

According to Royal Group Charity press report release, all private and public hospitals, and health facilities must report any suspected case to the local authorities by following the guidelines of the World Health Organization. Royal Group Charity Foundation has advised people to avoid unnecessary travel to the cities where the new coronavirus has spread and avoid close contact with the persons who show any of the related symptoms.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.  

According to the World Health Organization  ( WHO ) Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. 

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

W.H.O. raises its risk assessment to the highest level.

UAE Foreign Aid


(1) The UAE has donated billions of US Dollars in overseas aid over the last four decades.

(2) The UAE implements fully its official development assistance commitments to least developed countries.

(3) The UAE has donated over $40 billion in humanitarian and relief aid in emergency situations and charity aid to over 175 countries around the world.

Humanitarian aid accounts for a significant part of the UAE’s total foreign aid where the country responds to major crises through its charities and humanitarian agencies called the Abu Dhabi fund for development, Emirates red crescent, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan foundation and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum charity and humanitarian foundation as well as other international organizations.

The UAE foreign aid targets priority areas such as humanitarian assistance, charitable aid, elimination of poverty, support for children, global sectoral programs such as transportation, infrastructure, construction of housing complexes, roads, bridges, power generation, governments support, development projects, and empowerment of women

The UAE’s aid has only humanitarian objectives. It is neither governed by politics nor is not limited by geography, race, color or religion of the beneficiary. This is a practical application of the principle of tolerance in the UAE. This policy was laid down by the founder President of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who stressed that foreign aid and assistance is one of the basic pillars of UAE foreign policy.

When formulating its approach to providing foreign aid, the UAE has adopted the idea of sustainable development and improving the welfare of all mankind.

The main goal of foreign aid offered by the UAE is to reduce poverty and improve quality of life in underprivileged communities, promote relations between the UAE and other states, including the recipient countries and other donor states, and encourage creation of economic relations with developing countries based on mutual interests

The UAE provides foreign aid in response to the directives from His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, extending help to the needy people around the world. This is based on the UAE’s commitment to support the goals of sustainable development that the international community has agreed to achieve in the coming 15 years to eliminate poverty

The International Humanitarian City

Founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, The International Humanitarian City is the one and only non-profit, independent, humanitarian free-zone Authority hosting a community of members comprised of UN organizations, international non-governmental organizations, intergovernmental organizations, and commercial companies.

The International Humanitarian City is the largest humanitarian hub in the world with the most diverse members. It plays a pivotal role in facilitating first responses to crises at a global level efficiently. Based in Dubai, The International Humanitarian City has a strategic location allowing rapid relief to be within reach in all corners of the world.

The International Humanitarian City enables its members and aid agencies to conduct fundraising activities in the United Arab Emirates with the partnership and support of the City to obtain government approval. it offers an innovative approach to support humanitarian response through its facilities, warehousing and close-knit network of partners in the private sector, local community, and government.

In order to consolidate the impact of the UAE foreign aid, the UAE cabinet has formed the UAE humanitarian committee, which aims to channel and combine the collective expertise of UAE humanitarian responders in order to facilitate, oversee and coordinate the country’s humanitarian aid.

The UAE’s foreign aid was in line with the country’s policy of supporting the UN millennium development goals.

The UAE is currently involved in the efforts to achieve United Nations sustainable development goals.

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

Implementation of

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

With the believe that eliminating extreme poverty is possible, Royal Group Charity is proud to present the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision to implement our actions on this belief.

Ending extreme poverty is possible and therefore launch a global movement behind this effort.

Each year, the GCC Countries make a life saving difference for millions of men, women, and children around the world to equip and empower the most vulnerable people with tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Extreme poverty and suffering persist in too many parts of the world. More than a billion people struggle to survive each day which is unacceptable to Royal Group Charity Foundation.

With highly skilled and committed professionals who share an exceptional depth of experience will focus on the most vulnerable communities and some of the hardest to reach. GCC 2020 Poverty Vision will be working in over 15 countries across Africa reaching millions of people to help access high quality primary education and supporting children well being which is a worldly recognized solution to the cycle of poverty.

GCC 2020 Poverty Vision is a global community of humanitarians, partners, community members, supporters, donors, and volunteers who share a common vision of a world where no one lives in poverty, oppression or fear. Providing everyone the opportunity to exercise their rights to a brighter future. To have access to the opportunities and choices essential to a healthy and creative life that can be treated with honor and respect.

We are convinced that changes can happen when people are equipped and empowered to improve the lives and futures of their families.

The change becomes stable when we share the vision and help partner organizations and governments reach people on a much larger scale.

We are accurate in going to some of the hardest places and staying until the work is complete to help make sure change is sustainable.

Since 2010, the GCC Countries have been significantly reducing the extreme poverty rate. With this progress maintained, the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can eliminate at least the most extreme forms of absolute poverty in a much shorter timespan.

Following this road path of the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision, it could take another 40 years or more to lift one billion people out of poverty. Another positive path would be to incorporate the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision with the developing world in seeing one billion people out of extreme poverty by sometime around 2040.

What are the assurances that the second positive path can be followed? Among the list of threats one can identify to attaining that goal, inequality stands out as a major concern. Rising inequality can mean that growth largely by passes poor people. This has been happening in some countries. Experience among developing countries has been varied. Inequality falls about as often as it rises in growing developing countries, although absolute poverty measures tend to fall with growth. High inequality countries have a harder time reducing poverty in that they typically need higher growth rates than low inequality countries to attain the same pace of progress against poverty, and their high inequality often makes that growth even harder to attain.

In thinking about the implications for policy it is important to unpack inequality to identify the specific dimensions most relevant to progress against poverty. Inequalities in access to good quality schooling and health care stand out in many developing countries. In many rural economies, inequalities in access to land also remain an impediment to pro poor growth.

With the required political will, there is much that can be done to improve health and education services in poor places and in making legal systems more inclusive. These are high priorities for antipoverty policy by Improving tax systems in poor countries to expand the revenue for domestic anti poverty policies.

First there will be emergency aid short term assistance to deal with crises. Development assistance should help foster the conditions for sustainable poverty reduction in the longer term, including institutional development and building better public administrations.

It must be acknowledged, however, that the record of development aid has been uneven, and not always well considered in the light of what we have learned about the economics of poverty.

The sustainability of poverty reduction efforts poses a further set of challenges that assure that GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can be anticipated to ensure the sustainability of the reduction in poverty.

The GCC Countries continue to respond to both disaster and chronic extreme poverty.

Royal Group Charity recognizes that extreme poverty is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon which causes severe consequences. People living in extreme poverty also tend to be in poorer health and lack basic employable skills.
