by in World on 19th December, 2018

Poverty in the UK is still effecting an abysmal statistic of people.

Experts on the subject emphasise just how much and how differently poverty can manifest, especially in somewhere like London where the cost of living and the poverty line can sometimes look drastically different compared to areas around the world. According to a report by Trust For London, 1 in 4 Londoners are suffering from poverty. That makes it 2.3 million people in London alone compared to an overall of 21% of the general population of England.

Sufra Food bank and kitchen have been combatting poverty in London since 2013, and their journey is worth keeping an eye on.

Focused on community building, unpacking poverty, raising awareness of some of the complexities involved in poverty and how to help eradicate it on any scale, the centre has become a safe haven and attraction for locals and refugees seeking help and advice or those who volunteer their time to spending time with others.
