Declan Kelly encouraging the crowd to join in the event. To see more digital photographs from the Sydney Make Poverty History event enter our gallery.
In Australia, MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY is a coalition of aid agencies, community groups and celebrities.
“The gap between the world’s rich and poor has never been wider. Malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, conflict and illiteracy are a daily reality for millions.
But it isn’t chance or bad luck that keeps people trapped in bitter, unrelenting poverty. Key factors include: insufficient and ineffective aid; a glaringly unjust global trade system; and a debt burden so great that it suffocates any chance of recovery.” http://www.makepovertyhistory.com.au/home.html
Declan Kelly liked the photographs from the event and has added them to his official Declan Kelly gallery.
