"Nearly a third of the billion who live in extreme poverty worldwide live in the Muslim world. Between 2020-2021, COVID - 19 pushed an additional 51 million people from Islamic Development Bank member countries into extreme poverty, where existing socio-economic challenges became severe. Nonetheless, springing from the shared vision of LLF members and by combining resources and skills, the LLF’s multilateral philosophy and financing structure has brought economic growth and better living standards. Our dedication has given populations across multiple continents the tools to succeed — now and in the future."
