pauvreté ce n'est pas une question de charité.
Le problème, malgré les différences nationales, est européens et, pour cette raison, doit être placé au centre d'un appel urgent pour la sensibilisation et pour une plus attente considération particulièrement en ce qui concerne le développement des nouveaux programmes politiques au niveau européen.
