This article tells me how poorly the government is managing the food poverty. Many people have to rely on foodbanks beacuse they cannot afford to eat. But, the government ministers are still not taking any action in this issue and feel that it has nothing to do with them. The government put all the blame to others and even came out with more proposals like squeezing the incomes of low-paid working families, the sick, disabled and unemployed. I wonder if there is any ways to help them like reducing the prices of the food?
Eradicating poverty can involve many varied and innovative approaches according to circumstance. But a universal factor is that development of livelihoods depends on communities enjoying good health and access to education.
After reading this article, it made me realize that water is a virtal role in our life. In developing countries, women spend up to five hours every day collecting water. But, the water collected is dirty and contaminated with diseases that may cause illness for their family. Poverty eradication and basic services such as water and sanitation are part and parcel of the same objective to improve human well-being for those most in need. Comparing myself to them, i feel really lucky. Therefore, we must not waste water by taking it for granted. I wonder why the government are not thinking of ways to help their own country.
This text tells me that some children dropped out of school due to poverty and it effects their education. Education is important because it gives us vibrant future. The teachers rather focus on their test scores than helping to reseach on poverty in education. They should try to help those in poverty by giving them extra attention as they have no one else to seek for help. It is very unfair to those poor children as they are not given a chance to study and they will not have a vibrant future.
After reading this article, I realised that India had the greatest number of people living in poverty without sufficient food or water resources. Their caste system affects them since they could only do the kind of works that their older generation did to contribute. I feel that the govenment seem to neglect these parts of Asia thus causing them to live in poverty. The government should try to think of ways to improve their living.
From this article, i can see some homeless people sleeping on the street. A person's health can be affected if he/she lives in poverty. They have to worry about whether will they have enough food to eat. So they usually eat processed food as it is much cheaper than nutritional food. Hence, this will affect their health which make them feel more stressed up as they are lack of nutrition which eventually lead to falling sick. Poverty linked to greater rates of mental illness, and in some cases, certain kinds of mental illness seem linked to a greater likelihood of living in poverty. I think that the government should try to help them out by providing more jobs. I wonder if anyone know how tough they are suffering and ever tried to help them?
