Tax is powerful. It funds schools and hospitals everywhere. We all pay tax, but right now, big companies aren’t paying as much as they should in developing countries. This takes billions of dollars away from vital public services every year, and world’s poorest people are suffering as a result.
Each year between 250-300 million people are affected by disasters and conflicts.
In 2011, ActionAid responded to 13 disasters including floods, storms, droughts, mudslides, food crises and conflict. In 2012, that number rose to 18 and included earthquakes, fires, cholera outbreaks and hurricanes.
