How much more with poor and developing nations?
Everyday you have to learn to make ends meet
with the money from your job or your business.
What more for people
who have nowhere to stay or go
and just scavenge the streets to keep going by the day?
because you have to pay so many bills.
Water, electric, house
as well as food, clothing, etc.
Fortunate if you have a house
so you don't have to rent because rent is high.
But there are amazing people who are able to survive the city
scavenging the city streets,
looking for anything to sell to the junk shops.
Water bottles and plastics, cans and metals
can earn them some money
but they have to look for considerable amount
to make them survive the day.
It's very tough and hard but they keep doing
because they can do nothing more.
They walk long distances every single day throughout the city
and even under the heat of the sun.
Most, if not all, of them
are never been in school or just finished grade school.
No houses to go home to,
with parents and relatives who are as poor as they are.
And at the end of each day,
you'll find them on the sidewalks,
sleeping under some buildings or structures,
battling mosquitoes and other insects the whole night.
Eliminating poverty has always been a dream
of every government
but very elusive if not impossible.
Even the rich nations in the world
have their issues with poverty
or lack of food, clothing, shelter and jobs.
This world has always have poor people and rich people
I think ever since it was created.
Fortunate if you were born to a rich family,
or if you have a nice paying job
or a booming business.
But with the rich people,
always have a heart for the poor and miserable.
Don't keep your riches to yourselves.
Always give some to the needy.
What you give will always come back to you.
