Over the last couple of weeks Coralie then Larissa and Barry have lived on £1.50 a day for a week and five days respectively.
Why did we do it?
We wanted to raise awareness of the terrible plight of so many people across the world and do something to help. This challenge perfectly combines raising awareness with taking action by raising money for Deworm the World.
Half of the world lives on less than £905 a year of which around 65% is spent on food. That figure is adjusted for the buying power of different countries! Can you imagine living on the small amount of food we’ve been eating all your life?
That’s why the challenge was to live on £1.50 a day for food. 65% of £905 divided by 365. Yes that’s £1.61 but £1.50 is a nice round number.
