    I particulary like the last one, which illustrate the gap between rich people in devolpped countries and poor people in 3rd world countries. However, no matter how great these posters are, what you need to focus on, is a way to MAKE a difference 😉

    For a poster about poverty in a ‘rich’ country (New Zealand), check out www.justiceandcompassion.org.nz

    Thanks for including my UNICEF poster in your roundup. As the comment by Mathieu says, let’s hope all of these images can make a difference.

    Intense. And very well designed.
    Hope each gets the word out to the world effectively.

    Nice idea, but where are the posters that try to drive the people living in those countries to have less children?
    Less children = smaller resources consumption = better living conditions for those children.

    Thanx.

    and i would just like to say to you ADe, unless you’re providing contraception for the 3rd world country who you’re clearly forgetting cant even afford water let alone condoms, then your comment about having less children is a little bit stupid.
    think before you speak you moron. unless you’re telling everyone to stop having sex, which is pretty much the only good thing going for these people, just take away their last ounce of love why don’t you. better yet, cut off their reproduction organs. IDIOT.
