From this article, i learnt that many people are suffering from health problems due to poverty. The people are not just suffering from physical health, but also mentally. As they are suffering from having no money for their daily needs. I think that the society should help the people that are facing poverty and help them to stand back up on their feet instead of ignoring them.
I wonder if there is no poverty in the world, how great would it be.
In this fast paced and developed world that we are living in, having education is very important in order to survive in the society. Such as being able to secure a better job and earning more money. Many children around the world do not receive proper education due to the family's poor financial status. I think that the government should do something about children without education and give help to them. I wonder how many people are suffering out there just because they could not afford proper education and thus leading them to having a hard life.
The Platform / In Aghbalou: The Source of Water, Director Remigiusz Sowa explores the most unlikely and perilous of friendships, water and the desert (#CEP researcher John has been involved with production of Aghbalou: film about water &poverty...
This article talks about the people living in Todgha Valley having no access to water and in years to come, half of their crops will be gone and the temperature will increase as well. After reading the article, my heart goes out for the people living there. Water is such an important thing in life and yet the people there are suffering from shortage of water. In countries that are more developed, people are wasting their resources and not feeling guilty over it, and taking advantage of what good life they have. I pity the people living there that are deeply in need of water and have to dig deeper and deeper into the land for more water for their living needs and for their growing crops. I wonder how many people living there have been affected due to the lack of water.
BANGKOK (TrustLaw) – Women workers in Asia face the risk of “persistent vulnerability, poverty and exploitation” despite a recovering economy and their huge potential due to prejudice, according to a report by the International Labour Organisation and Asian Development Bank. A large majority of women here are stuck in lower-end, lower-pay jobs in vulnerable, informal and insecure sectors with little social protection and at the lowest rung of the global supply chain, it said. While progress has been made in past decades addressing gender inequalities, “discrimination against women remains pervasive throughout the labour markets of the region,” Women and labour markets in Asia: Rebalancing Gender Equality said. According to the report, the Asia Pacific region is losing $24 billion to $47 billion annually because of women’s limited access to employment opportunities and another $16 billion to $30 billion as a result of gender gaps in education. Also listen to the following radio broadcast on Radio Australia http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/connectasia/stories/201104/s3203663.htm
In Asia there are many people that are being forced to work tough jobs and receiving low pays especially women. I felt unfair for the women that are facing discrimination from the society and i think that this old fashioned way of thinking should not exist anymore. Women and men should be treated equally and fairly. Just because they are women does not mean that they are less capable. I wonder why the society has changed to be so modernised but yet their thinking are still so old fashioned.
"Global food prices continue to rise," begins a recent report by the World Bank. Between October 2010 and January 2011, the Bank's food price index increased by 15 percent, and the global prices of wheat, maize, sugar and edible oils have all increased sharply. (RT @Truth247: Rising Food Prices Intensify Poverty, Hunger In U.S. & World http://huff.to/dLurhu ||No COLA 4 SocSec 4 2 yrs. $250 payment blocked by GOP)
From this article, i understand that the food prices are increasing and some of the essential food have even doubled in price. The reason behind the rising prices in food is due to bad harvesting and using essential food for chemicals. With food prices increasing, there will be more and more families facing poverty. I think that the government should not increase the prices in food because certain families with low income already have trouble affording for their basic needs thus if the food prices are high, they will suffer more. I wonder why the government is not taking any action when there is an increasing amount of families facing poverty and children that are lacking of nutrition.
