Mohamed Hashim's insight:

I knew before reading this that Pakistan is in Poverty because they always have riots and houses will be destroyed.After reading this, i was shocked to read that 58.7 million people in Pakistan are living below the poverty line. I wonder how are they going to help so many people from poverty. Rajanpur is on top of the list with 44 per cent households falling below the poverty line. It is confusing how out of 27 districts 18 districts face severe poverty.

Mohamed Hashim's insight:

Before i read this article, i know that being poor will make you sad.But after reading this i learnt that being poor affects the health of 50+ age group.Their probability of dying earlier is higher.I also learnt that there are 3 types of poverty: income poverty, wealth poverty and subjective poverty.what is confusing me is that why old people get sick when they are poor.

More than 46.5 million Americans live in poverty — more than at any time in our nation's history.
Mohamed Hashim's insight:

This article mainly speaks about poverty in North Florida and across America.I did not know so much people are in poverty .Surprisingly 46.5 million people in Americans live in poverty.This is something i did not know.I got a new idea that to vulnerable families you have to be in their shoes.You have to know the root of the cause before even beginning to help.
