Meg Munn beating poverty

Friday, October 18, 2002

Meg Munn, Labour and Co-operative MP for Sheffield Heeley has thrown her support behind a new Save the Children campaign called "Beat Poverty".

Save the Children’s Beat Poverty campaign, based on their experience of working with children around the world, is calling for

? more long-term investment in basic healthcare and good quality education, world-wide, to give every child the best start in life

? the UK Government to increase significantly the budget for overseas aid, and to set an early date for reaching the agreed UN target

? guarantees that trade liberalisation will not undermine children’s rights to health, nutrition and secure livelihoods

? children to be the top priority in all actions governments take to tackle poverty.

Meg Munn, who supported the Save the Children charity last year by collecting foreign coins, has now signed up to the Beat Poverty campaign, promising to promote the goals and to lobby government Ministers for action.

Meg said

"The Beat Poverty campaign has taught me that now, more than ever, governments need to make children a priority. Today, when 40 per cent of the world’s population is under 15 and poverty is robbing millions of them of a future, it is time to put children at the heart of strategies and actions to combat poverty.

I will be doing what I can to make sure that our government sticks to the promises it has made to lift children out of poverty and I urge Sheffield people to join the campaign too."

For more details of the campaign, and to sign up to support Beat Poverty, visit the website at www.beatpoverty.org or telephone 0207 701 8916.
