I always knew that singapore’s government have always been trying to help the needy people. I really respect the government after reading this as they are really trying very hard to reach out for the needy people and is doing their best to help them. This article taught me that we should always help the needy as much as we can and realize that there are people in poverty living among us.I am really happy that the government would be raising funds to help them. I wonder if the amount of people in poverty are decreasing.
After reading this article, I learnt a lot of new things about poverty. I never knew that more than 100 million Americans lived near the brink of poverty. And the fact that 70% of them are woman and children is even worse as not only does the adults have to face poverty, even the small children have to start suffering at such a young age. This really makes me treasure what I have now as not everyone is lucky enough to not be in poverty. After reading this article, I wonder why so many people are facing poverty.
I always knew that poverty had connections with not having an education and I find it very sad that children in congo stops going to school once they reach puberty because of the poor sanitation. Education is very important, and everyone should have a chance to get an education. This article changes my attitude towards education, that anyone who has a chance to be able to get an education should take it and treasure it. After reading this article, I wonder if anyone has tried to do something about their poor sanitation.
