I see that one of the reason many are living in extreme poverty is due to the huge increase in cost of energy, petrol and food where 1.6 million of them are children. I think that children should not go through things like this, they should live a peaceful live and not worry about what they should do the next day. I wonder if they could make their own fire and cook, find food in the jungle and walk to their destination without the use of transportation which can reduce the usage of energy, petrol and food?
I see that a huge number of people in this world (almost half) live their lives with less than $2.50 a day, and some even with only $1. I think that the numbers are very scary whereby thinking about it makes me shocked. I wonder how can someone live a day with only $1, and worse, most of the poor have huge family?
The World Bank says soaring food prices have already pushed millions more people into extreme poverty this year.
Chua Chong Yih's insight:
I see that the one of the reasons that more and more people are being pushed into extreme poverty is due to the rise in food prices. India, is a very good example where more than a quarter of the world's hungry people lives. I think that the soaring in food prices will definitely affect us whether we are poor or rich, and therefore we need to be more aware of what we spend our money on. I wonder what is the cause of the soaring in food prices and what we can do such that it does not affect us that much.
I see that children living in poverty have been accepted and seen as an American. The main topic in Washington and state capitals in America is more on reducing survival programs for struggling families rather than reducing child poverty. I think that this is wonderful and heartwarming as I strongly believe that we should not judge people on their wealth, but rather their character and most of the poor are rather kind whereas the wealthy ones are arrogant and boastful. I wonder why Americans have learnt to accept the poors as part of their family, when in the past they have always been discriminating them?
I see that one of the reasons for poverty is the rise in living costs. Living costs includes essentials like food, health, education, housing, utilities and transport which are things that we need. I think that one of the main reasons families are exposed to poverty is due to the large amount of people in one family. I wonder if they had family planning and cut down on child birth, would there be lesser cases?
