Living without or struggling to pay for basic essentials required to live, ie; food, clothes, water, housing or health care.

Many percieve that poverty only exists in third world countries, but the reality is, you will find poverty in almost every country in the world, even in developed countries like the USA, Britain, Canada, Australia ect.
In the UK alone, it is thought that up to 40% of children live in poverty. First world country my arse.
