    I would like any information when the next meeting is. ant other information on this.

    To cut down Pverty reduction is stop giving money to people who just use for their drugs or their drink. when it come to the kids most young mother like to spend it on themselve not the their kids. Yes! for those who are trying to make thing do it is hard yes, they do need more. Try to live on a tight budget it is not easy at all.
