Poverty in South America

Serving South America


How does your church want to impact South America? Select a cause below.


Of the 370 million people who live in South America, 64% of the poor live in urban areas. A lack of social services, low number of jobs that provide a livable wage, steep school drop-out rates and income inequality are all challenges that contribute to the poverty level and social vulnerability of South Americans.
