And we regret that another year, more there is this lack of attention of the local executive (before the PP now the PSOE), in the face of child poverty, leaving Lorca infants without resources, without the possibility of attending school canteens during the summer period.
Recall that the Region of Murcia is the third community where the rate of poverty or social exclusion grows most.
One third of Spanish employees in 2017 were below the poverty line and another 5.4 million suffered a severe material shortage, and were even below the poverty line if it was a household consisting of two adults and two children.
By Autonomous Communities Murcia is one of the regions where the rate of poverty or social exclusion has advanced the most.
In contrast to the general trend, poverty was reduced in La Rioja, Castilla y León, Asturias, Galicia and Ceuta.
We do not understand that Lorca is, once again, at the expense of the collaboration of ONG'S, which also do not have the necessary resources to deal with hundreds of children who are unable to meet their basic needs such as adequate food .
Hopefully with this new change of local government, rectification and also change the sensitivity in these social issues.
