Eurochild President H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca urges EU leaders to act against #childpoverty at the upcoming EU Council meeting on 17-18 July 2020 on the EU’s recovery plan from #Covid-19 and its long-term budget.
H.E. Coleiro Preca leads the pan-European children’s rights network, Eurochild, in its call to EU leaders to accept the European Commission’s proposal to provide at least at least 5% of the European Social Fund Plus resources to reducing child poverty in all EU Member States. “Don’t just think of bailing out businesses, invest in our public good. Invest in our children. Invest in our children and families to break the cycles of disadvantage. Our world, our Europe, will be in a better place if you do.” #EndChildPoverty #EUCO
