Jodie aims to get by on £1

Have your say

JODIE Gomersall from Rotherham will live on just £1 a day for the next five days to raise money to help some of the world’s poorest people.

Live Below the Line is a Christian Aid campaign which aims to recruit 5,000 people across the UK to take up the challenge of spending just £5 in five days on all their food and drink. The aim is to highlight the struggles of the 1.4 billion people who live below the poverty line worldwide, surviving on just £1 a day to cover all their living expenses.

Jodie has seen for herself the reality of extreme poverty after visiting Kenya last year. She said: “It will be a challenge, but that’s the point of it. I met people in Kenya who have to live on £1 a day for everything - we’re just budgeting for food and drink.”
