Number of Impoverished Children Has Increased

A new UNICEF report says that the poverty of children in the Netherlands has increased from 12.9% in 2008 up to 13.9% in 2013.  11% of people interviewed in 2013 said that there had been moments where they did not have enough money to buy food for themselves.  In 2008, the figure was 4%.  Already in March of this year, the Verwey-Jonker Institute published the fact that between 2009-2012, the number of children living in poverty in the Netherlands increased by 10%.  The report also mentioned that impoverished children live mainly outside the main urban areas.
