Goal 1: End Poverty in all its forms everywhere
Poverty is generally associated with a lack of health, education, food, knowledge and many other things that make the difference between living and merely surviving. People living with a rare disease are confronted daily and often since birth with obstacles such as exclusion from health care and education systems. This leads to lower employment rates and traps them in a vicious cycle of vulnerability and poverty.
By supporting people living with a rare disease, we are helping the most vulnerable of the vulnerable, and thus moving one step closer to eradicating poverty in all its forms.
