Leaders from 20 of world's largest economies will be meeting in Cannes, France, next week to seek solutions to the global economic crisis.
The G20 leaders will also be searching for ways to help some of their most vulnerable populations. Those most at risk are children living in poverty.
The Christian humanitarian group World Vision says 8.8 million children across the globe die before their fifth birthdays every year.
Nearly 30 percent of those deaths are preventable.
World Vision is encouraging G20 leaders to fulfill past promises to increase food assistance and medical care to kids in danger.
Adam Taylor, vice president of advocacy for World Vision, shared more about global childhood poverty and disease and how to address the problem. Click play to watch the interview.
