Each year, millions move from the countryside into cities, making urban poverty more challenging, say Lauren Hendricks and Peter Lochery of CARE International. People are migrating to cities in search of economic opportunities. These migrants reside on the fringes (periphery) of the cities with no access services. They try to save money to send home to their families, so they look for the cheapest place to live. The respective governments do not consider it their mandate to provide them with the required services since those are illegal settlements.
