Greece Failing to Protect Children from Poverty

Child in the StreetGreece is failing to protect its children from poverty, the Deputy Ombudsman Giorgos Moschos told a parliamentary committee on equality and human rights on Friday.
His opinion is based on a study conducted by experts from the National Center for Social Research, who examined various data before coming to this conclusion.
“The expert team has revealed that children risking poverty had increased from 23% in 2008 to 30.4% in 2011. Children experiencing severe material deprivation also rose from 18.7% to 29.2%, while those living in a household where both parents are unemployed had tripled to 9.2%,” Moschos highlighted.
The Deputy Ombudsman concluded by emphasizing that, so far, there hasn’t been any political commitment to protecting children from poverty.
