Poverty is everywhere in the world even with rich countries.
How much more with poor and developing nations?
Everyday people have to try to make ends meet with the money from job or business.
What the future holds for people who have nowhere to call home
and just roam around and scavenge the streets to keep going by the day?
Life is much harder for them but they have already learned to survive.
City life is rough and tough 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 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, 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 the truth is it's far from becoming reality 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 ever since it was created.
Fortunate if you were born to a rich family, if you have a nice paying job
or if you own 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.
