Poverty (Specifically child poverty) is the greatest calling facing humanity. Will humanity think of these children as distractions? So far history has judged us on the wrong side of the issue.
Anything and everything is done in the name of eradicating has not worked so far. The next question is are we going to keep on tackling this issue with the same intensity and techniques that have not served their purpose so far?
Many people think of world hunger and world poverty as a part of life.
Could you imagine your own child, niece, sister, or close friend starving to death? Poverty is the ultimate punishment hungry kids are paying for a crime they did not commit.
We all share some form of blame. Simply because everyone can do his or her part. How? Start by searching a reputable foundation or charity and learn more about it (like what help, and how they help). Then if you can afford it, start by giving a dollar or two or three or a hundred.
Do not assume for a second, that giving is someone else’s responsibility. Bend the way your mind works and thinks about Hunger and poverty.
There is a great deal you can do about child poverty if giving money is not your choice of attacking this issue. You can write to your government to put the pressure on, you can volunteer your time, you can join a movement like Poverty March (a virtual online march that is free to join and only needs putting your name saying that you are a member of the poverty marchers, it’s a fresh and new way of asking for a change in the progress we’re making on eradicating poverty)
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Few facts that can be a food for you thought: 27,000 – 30,000 children die every day
That is equivalent to:
* 1 child dying every 3 seconds
* 20 children dying every minute
* A 2004 Asian Tsunami occurring almost every week
* An Iraq-scale death toll every 15 to 35 days
* 10 -11 million children dying every year
* Over 50 million children dying between 2000 and 2005
Child poverty and hunger is an issue that should be tackled and faced with a ferocity that is unparallel. So are you just going to think about how this was an interesting article, or are you going to attend your next step on what and how you can help bring about change and awareness?
