directhelp - we CAN do something!

What is this blog about? - Did you know?

More than 165 million people in Europe live below the poverty line. In 18 countries of central and eastern Europe and the newly independent states, 8 have 50% or higher of their population living below the poverty line. Some 2% of the population of the European Region lives in absolute poverty.

The fall of Communism ended a political and economic system in which all people had been virtually guaranteed jobs and basic needs, such as food and housing. Economic upheaval has led to family breakup and a dramatic increase in the number of orphaned children and many orphans live in extreme poverty and suffer from malnutrition, disease, and starvation.

Unicef says nearly 18 million children in this region are living on less than $2.15 a day! (Acknowledgement to for details).

Directhelp is not a charity. It is an attempt to raise money directly and quickly to shortcut the bureaucracy and waste.
