White Poverty (in the New South Africa)

More than 40 000 whites, of a total 4,5 million South Africans are currently classified as absolutely poor and live in informal settlements. Shacks and tents...
Ryan Teo's insight:

The poverty there is such that they have to live in tents pitched by the community in the area around the tents. It's real sad that they do not have a proper roof above them. There are people trying to get a job and earn some money but no one seems to be giving them the attention and help they need to earn money. I think we should all just take a minute or two to take a look at the banner they made to look for jobs and help them.

Poverty

every 3 seconds a child dies as a result of extreme poverty...think about it...and do something.
Ryan Teo's insight:

It is a sad thing that children that are so young are starving due to poverty and they eventually dies at young age and it's sad to know that every 3 seconds a child dies as a result of hunger which is due to extreme poverty. What i know about poverty before learning more in depth about it during english lesson was just as simple as not having enough money to buy other stuff like my wants but after i watched this video i realized that the kids are suffering from poverty. The poverty i used to think is way more fortunate than them as i have food on my table everyday but they don't. I wonder if i am able to live like them.

Monique Clare Balderson's curator insight, July 17, 2015 12:44 AM

Poverty has become a serious matter in the world, only the small elite lived a life without poverty and now that has changed. In the future I see myself helping 3rd world countries such as Africa who suffer with extreme poverty. I aim to help them with building facilities and teaching them vital survival techniques as people living in poverty wouldn't have the education or adequate tools that we have to build simple shelters.

Welcome To The World - Why Poverty?

Ryan Teo's insight:

I think it is worse to be born poor than die poor as born poor the child has to suffer since birth till the day he die due to hunger. I think that couples should not have sex when they are not able to afford to have a child as the child is innocent they shouldn't be brought in to suffer with the couple.
