A new UNICEF Report: the full text: it reveals: one child in three lives in a dwelling with more than five people per room, or with a mud floor; nearly 20% of the world's children do not have access to safe water, or have more than 15-minute walk to water; over 15% of children under five in developing countries are severely malnourished; In South Asia alone, more than 90 million children go hungry ever day; 134 million children between the ages of 7 and 18 have never been to school; in ME: girls are three times more likely than boys to have never attended school.
